A-list Aussie celebs including Kylie Minogue, Dannii Minogue and Sia also expressed their joy over the result on Twitter.
"The Australian people have spoken loud and clear. #LoveIsLove," Sia wrote.
And Dannii expressed how she was proud to be a part of "a new Australia where #loveislove (sic)".
On Wednesday Head of the Australian Bureau of Statistics, David Kalisch, announced that 61.6 per cent of those who participated in the postal vote wanted to see the law change.
The Senate will be asked later today to support a move to introduce draft laws allowing same-sex marriage on Thursday.
The proposed bill will be debated in both houses of parliament but Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull remains confident the law can be passed before Christmas.
What a historic day for Australia. Love is love.
