    I believe that if you are on a PR visa your baby will be born an Australian.

    Yes as you have PR your baby gets Aus citizenship through being born here. Your child gets UK citizenship through descent, which means they can't pass it on to their children unless.....

    their children are born in the UK.

    their chilren's other parent is a UK born citizen.
