Do you have any documents - Your birth certificate should list your fathers name and occupation and also your mothers name it should also show marriage details.

From these details you can obtain the marriage certificate for your father, which will give you their ages, marital status, birthplace, occupation, usual residence, fathers name, mothers name and fathers occupations for the bride and groom and it will also give any witnesses names.

From here you can search further back for their parents in the same way. You should be able to find your fathers birth certificate from the marriage certificate details.

You can also try historical indexes for BDM Queensland online and BDM NSW is also online, both free to search.
