I certified everything that I didn't print off my computer myself. If I had to photocopy something I had it certified (birth announcements, Christmas and Birthday cards, etc.). If having something certified would mean just printing two copies and having one certified I didn't bother.

Here's a list of what we got certified for my partner's 820/801 application:

Passport bio page

Birth certificate (translated to English & certified by NAATI translator)
Government ID card (foreign language)
Government ID card (translated to English & certified by NAATI translator)
Statement about our relationship (witnessed & signed)

Passport bio page
Birth certificate
Drivers license
Statement about our relationship (witnessed & signed)

Marriage certificate
Joint rental lease
3x Form 888 (witnessed & signed)
3x Passport bio pages of witnesses

The following we did not certify and just provided printouts/copies:

Electricity bills
Gas bills
Phone bills & records
Letter of employment confirmation for sponsor (submitted original)
Bank statements

We also submitted:
Photos (with dates/notes on the back of each one)
Original greeting cards to/from each other (birthday/valentines day etc)
A couple of screenshots from Skype & Facebook

The visa was granted in under 2 weeks.

Hope that is helpful.
