Default Evidence of Australian Citizenship for passport

My daughter was born in Australia (I and my wife are PRs) and she is an Australian Citizen. I had planned on the two of us getting citizenship and then applying for Australian Passports for all the 3 of us. However, based on what I'm reading on the below website, it seems like I will need to get evidence of Australian Citizenship for my daughter (I wanted to avoid this if possible and was hoping that mine and my wife's citizenship certificates combined with the birth certificate for my daughter would be sufficient for her to get an Aussie passport).

https://www.passports.gov.au/passpor...our-australian

Can someone please confirm?

Wouldn't you just have to apply for an evidence of citizenship and certificate via DHA @ $190, e.g. here:
https://immi.homeaffairs.gov.au/citi...te#Eligibility

The baby's birth certificate + one parents passport + evidence of one parents PR should be proof enough according to the link.

It says processing time is 4-10 days for 75%/90% of applications.

Then use that certificate from DHA to apply for a passport here:

Your daughter will need a Citizenship Certificate. Yours are not sufficient.

Once you get hers, she will be able to use it if needed for the rest of her life - once in a while that can be handy, even with an Australian Passport, as it counts as another piece of ID.

Thanks guys! I was under the impression (dunno why but could have been some misinformation on this website or I might have read incorrectly) that we could use our citizenship certificates to get a passport for our daughter. I had filled out the application more than a year ago for her and just never proceeded with it. Time to get it moving
