There are lots of government websites and we know it can be hard to find the information you need. Australia.gov.au puts you on the right path by linking to information and services on around 900 Australian government websites as well as selected state and territory resources.
The australia.gov.au search engine also provides a search across all Australian government websites, letting you find information from many agencies at once.
To make sure we keep meeting your needs and expectations, we’re redesigning australia.gov.au.
For the public
The australia.gov.au website is primarily for the public and is your trusted source of government information.
The australia.gov.au domain is also a memorable website address for government campaigns used in the media such as australia.gov.au/theline.
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.
The Department of Finance is responsible for the development and ongoing operation of this website.
For government agencies
The australia.gov.au domain is a memorable link shortener for government campaigns used in the media such as australia.gov.au/theline. Agencies don't need to register unnecessary domains for content which can exist on their own sites.
australia.gov.au has been developed with usability, privacy and accessibility principles in mind. We're always keen to improve the site. If you have any feedback, ideas or even complaints, please send them to us using the contact us form.
