I did some reading on the subject and found this and while you don't need to according to this, I'd consider the implications
Just consider that whoever has an expired passport would not be able to travel outside of Australia. Also unless you are renouncing your UK citizenship you would need a UK passport to reenter the UK as its the standard to enter and leave a country on that countries passport if you hold it (so Aus for Aus, UK for UK).
I found it in this thread using the search function :)

Funnily enough my hubby and i have been talking about citizenship this weekend...not that we have even applied for the visa yet (:daydreaming:) however, if you get citizenship, does this mean when it says nationallity on form do you put Australian instead of British? (maybe a stupid question as i presume you would put Australian, but just chcking)
Rob, you would put whichever nationality was appropriate at the time. If in the UK, you would put UK, in Australia, you would use Australian.
An update for anyone interested, have just got off the phone to Australian Immigration and Citizenship and have been told that it doesnt matter if your kids UK passports are out of date when you apply for citizenship, unless you are intending to travel overseas within that year as there is a lenghthy process to getting citizenship and Aussie passports.
