A van belonging to one of the Australians was found in the northwestern state of Sinaloa in late November with two charred corpses inside. Officials ran DNA tests to identify them.
The Sinaloa state lawyer general, Marco Antonio Higuera, confirmed through a spokesman that all results showed the corpses were of the missing men, Dean Lucas and Adam Coleman.
The state was still waiting for official paperwork in order to finish the process, the spokesman said.
The news comes as surfers across Mexico paddled out in tribute to the two Perth men who were killed.
With the support of the victims’ families, the Mexican Surfing Federation organised a national paddle to honour Coleman and Lucas, both 33.
Sinaloa officials this month arrested three men over the disappearance, but said two suspects remain at large.
Lucas and Coleman were due to travel to the western city of Guadalajara on November 21 but did not arrive, according to a message posted on social media site Facebook.
The abandoned van was found near the Pacific coast in Sinaloa, about 200km south of where they were last seen and 716km north of Guadalajara.
It was unclear why the two men had strayed off course, or why they would be targeted.
Sinaloa is notorious in Mexico as the heartland of some of the country’s most powerful and dangerous drug cartels.
Mr Coleman’s mother Zenandy Cattermole, who has travelled to Mexico, posted on Facebook: “It’s a slow but positive process we are dealing with and can’t fault anyone we have had communication with, our heartfelt thanks are with everyone who are celebrating our sons’ lives.”
