Can Government-Paid Adoption Leave be shared with the child's father?

Yes, adoptive fathers can share up to 4 weeks of their spouse’s 12 weeks of adoption leave, if their formal intent to adopt is on or after 1 July 2017.

As an adoptive father, you can also apply for Government-Paid Paternity Leave if you meet the eligibility criteria.
