Surrogacy Laws in Australia are administered at a State level and there are wide variations in what types of surrogacy arrangements allowed in various states. For those intending to conduct their surrogacy in Australia, Altruistic Surrogacy is available in all states for heterosexual couples.
Gay couples resident in all states apart from WA are able to access altruistic surrogacy as well.
Compensated surrogacy (where the surrogate is paid more than expenses) is not allowed in any state of Australia. Overseas Commercial Surrogacy is banned for residents of NSW, QLD and ACT, although these laws have never been prosecuted.
