Personally I go off the information provided by immigration

"Apply for a police certificate
See how to apply for a police certificate in the relevant countries.
To get a police certificate in Australia you must submit an Australian Federal Police National Police Check application form.
Use Code 33 at Question 1 on the form and include details of all names you have been known by.
We do not accept state- or territory-issued Australian police certificates.
Fingerprints are not needed for Australian police checks.
