The state government of Victoria (Vic) does NOT have a free online historical family history search index. They charge 99 cents to view a page of records, and will only accept payment by credit card.
Not having a credit card, all I have been able to ascertain is that under all BDM categories, there are 66 records under MAWBEY and 160 under MAWBY.

There was a large family of MAWBYs at Daylesford in Victoria, a member of which was CHRISTOPHER WOODWARD MAWBY
