There is no registration system for copyright in Australia. Generally, under the Copyright Act 1968, the author or creator of the work owns copyright by default.
When creating your book, you can include a copyright note, which lets people know who owns copyright. For example:

An introduction to copyright can be found on the Australian Copyright Council website.
If you need to know how the law applies to your particular situation, you will need to contact a lawyer.
