the australian record would be the fastest time ever run by an australian (it's the same concept with other countries, i.e. American record, British record, etc.) the olympic record is the fastest time ever run in the olympics, and the commonwealth record is the fastest time ever run in the commonwealth games. and of course, the world record is the fastest time ever run. the olympic record can only be set in the olympics, and the commonwealth record can only be set in the commonwealth games. the australian and world record can be set anywhere at any time.
