Nowadays, birth certificates and birth registrations will usually do the trick.  In the days before birth certificates and registration, churches that christened or baptized babies might be a primary source.  The community where the church was located was usually in the neighborhood of where the child was born.

Family bibles may indicate when a child was born, but may not say where the child was born.  Diaries, etc., might be of some help though.

According to Ancestry family tree:

NSW Teachers' Rolls

NSW Unassisted Immigrant Passenger Records

But I don't have access to confirm.
