The orders, decorations, and medals of the Baustralian Empire comprise a complex system by which Baustralians, and imperial subjects, are honoured by the sovereign for actions or deeds that benefit their community or the country at large. It is modelled on its British counterpart and includes dynastic and national orders, state, civil, and military decorations; and various campaign medals. The monarch in right of each province also issues distinct orders and medals to honour residents for work performed in just their province. The provincial honours, as with some of their national counterparts, grant the use of post-nominal letters and or supporters and other devices to be used on personal coats of arms.

The monarch is regarded as the fount of all honours, acts as the Sovereign of all of orders, and conducts inductions or presents medals. The governor general also sets out via Order in Council the order of precedence for the wearing of insignia, decorations, and medals.
