Just go get married. Your alien status has nothing to do with getting married. Normalizing your status after marriage is another matter though. You should still be able to change your illegal alien status to that of legal resident by way of marriage to a citizen, but the process will be complicated both by your past crime and your lack of documentation.

An Australian citizen is either someone who was born in Australia and lives here, or someone who has become a naturalised Australian, choosing to become an Australian citizen through a series of programmes and trainings. Australian citizens have the right to vote in federal, state and local elections. If an Australian citizen leaves the country and takes up citizenship in another country, he/she may choose to revoke his Australian citizenship.

Also, an Australian citizen can live and work in another country without taking up citizenship, and thereby remaining an Australian citizen whether or not he/she lives in his/her country of birth.
