From the Flags of Paradise 1996 chart:
1970-1971: Australian Trust Territory: vertical triband, blue with white Crux Australis [southern cross], yellow, red with white paradise bird.(but Dorling Kindersley 1997 reports a golden paradise bird).
1971-1975: Australian Self Government: current national flag.
1975-: Independent state: current national flag.

Both Dorling Kindersley 1997 and Barraclough and Crampton 1981, page 213, report the stripes being blue, white and green, but the correct colours were: blue, yellow and green. Sources:
