How do you win an election in Australia??

I have searched and searched, but couldn't find the answer! Please help!


All the sites I went to suggest that the party with a majority (I'm assuming this means 50+ percent, as in my system of government) of the seats is asked to form the government. But what happens if no party has a majority? Example: one party has 40%, and six other parties each have 10%. With my system, the 40% party is asked to form a minority government and I'm assuming its the same with Australia, but no where could I find this situation mentioned... Help?
