The Australasian Open Access Strategy Group (AOASG) has a helpful factsheet to explain what the ARC & NHMRC policies mandate, prefer and permit.

If your research is funded partially or fully by the ARC or NHMRC, then when your research output is accepted for publication, you should provide details regarding the publication to your institutional repository (ResearchOnline, for all you Macquarie University folks.) The metadata about your research output will then be disseminated.
Once your research output is published, it is preferred that you deposit a full-text author manuscript of the output in your institutional repository. If your output was published in an open access medium, such as an open access journal, then it is permitted to include in your institutional repository a link to that item. If your output was published as an open access item in a disciplinary repository, such as AARN or SSRN, then it is permitted to include in your institutional repository a link to that item.
If you have any questions about how to make your publicly-funded research open access at Macquarie University, contact the institutional repository team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
