A free ebook was published by the Australian National University Press in August this year. It is the geological history of the Australian Continent by numerous authors and edited by Richard Blewett. The book is titled called Shaping a Nation: A Geology of Australia. If you are keen (or old fasioned like me) you can buy a hard cover copy of the book for $70. Have a quick look at the PDF first and you'll see how good it is and worth the expense.
The electronic copy of the book can be obtained at the following site:
