About .au domain names:

This extension is only open to companies, commercial entities and trademarks in Australia or that can operate within the territory of Australia. This includes sole proprietors, trusts, incorporated associations and corporations, all of which generally have an ABN or ACN with ASIC. .AU domain names are managed by the auDA.
This is a sign of trust and credibility for Australian internet users. Web users across Australia are familiar with the .au extension, and it features a lot in advertisements and displays.
Furthermore, if you have activities in countries other than Australia, we recommend reserving an additional extension specifically for those countries.
