Citizenship by descent

Hi everyone

Just looking to see if anyone can give me some advice on my situation.

My Dad was born in Australia (Whyalla) in 1953. He left Australia a few years later and never owned an Australian Passport, but does have an Australian Birth Certificate. He has not lived in Australia since.

I was born in 1986 outside of Australia.

Am I entitled to Citizenship by Descent? It looks to me that I am, as my Dad has a Australian Birth Certificate, and is therefore an Australian Citizen, therefore I am eligible?

I looked at this about 10 years ago and came away believing I was NOT eligible. Am I wrong, or have the rules on this changed in the past 10 years?

Any information anyone can give me is much appreciated.
