you can check if there's a Family History Centre in your vicinity.
Met vriendelijke groet,

That is a possibilility - although I would suggest if the date is in error,
the error is in the transcribing rather than the recording.

For both the bride and groom it gives the birthplace - shouldn't be too hard
to find their dates.

You will need the actual document to find what further information is
recorded. Could be the death of an earlier spouse, or the acknowledgement of
a child born before the marriage.
Ron, whereabouts in Australia are you? If in a city or town, check your
phone book for the nearest Family History Centre. (Lacking an entry, call
the nearest Mormon Church and ask where the FHC is and what the phonenumber
is). Then call them, make an appointment and pay them a visit. Ask them
especially to explain the use of the Family History Library Catalogue. From
there you can then order for loan (and for a few dollars ;-)) the films
containing the images of the original documents. And while you have the film
there you could see if there are siblings or other relatives also recorded.
The above marriage can be found on film number 111161 (births, marriage
proclamations, marriages and deaths 1820-1823. Film number 111162 will give
you the marriage supplements for 1820-1823. Once you find the marriage
document, you need to note the year and registration number (and in this
case you already have it from the index) to find the supplements - gives
information on birth of the bride and groom, whether or not the groom served
in the military, information about deaths of the parents, and other goodies.
Note that these are usually extracts from the original documents, and do not
give ALL the information that can be found in the original, but they will
give you the name of the place where the birth or death or other event was
registered, so that you go and search there.
