Where can I renew my Australian passport?

I hold dual citizenship in the U.S. and Australia. Due to the travel restrictions of COVID-19, I have been staying in the U.S. since last year. I recently realized that my Australian passport has expired. Can I renew my passport in an Australian consulate here in the U.S.? Will I encounter any issues since it's already expired?

You'll need to print this, bring the items directed in the form (eg. passport photos, previous passport) to your nearest Australian government embassy or consulate office.
