You'll find this website is also a source of government information that is not consolidated elsewhere, such as public holidays.

Australian Stories are another feature of our website. They are a collection of professionally researched articles covering a wide variety of educational and cultural themes.  There are stories about architecture and design, digital media and film, festivals, history, Indigenous culture, language and literature, theatre and dance, natural environment and heritage and the visual arts and crafts.

Additionally this website highlights particular areas of government online presence, such as promoting government social media profiles, or government mobile applications "apps".
