Fifteen species in six genera of the family Halichondriidae, including two new species, Halichondria (Halichondria) carotenoidea sp. nov. and Halichondria (Halichondria) microbiana sp. nov., are recorded for northern Australia as part of a revision of the order Halichondrida (Porifera: Demospongiae) in this region. Descriptions and discussion of those species are presented here. Eight new combinations within the family Halichondriidae are here established, i.e. Amorphinopsis fenestrata (Ridley, 1884, as Leucophloeus), Amorphinopsis maculosa (Pulitzer-Finali, 1996, as Topsentia), Axinyssa bergquistae (Hooper et al., 1997, as Halichondria), Axinyssa mertoni (Hentschel, 1912, as Ciocalypta), Axinyssa gracilis(Hentschel, 1912, as Ciocalypta rutila gracilis), Axinyssa terpnis (De Laubenfels, 1954, as Phycopsis), Ciocalypta vansoesti (Hooper et al., 1997, as Halichondria) and Topsentia ridleyi (Hooper et al., 1997 as Halichondria) and one species is relocated into the family Dictyonellidae, i.e, Stylissa vernonensis (Hooper et al., 1997, as Hymeniacidon). A lectotype is designated for Ciocalypta stalagmites Hentschel, 1912.
