About australia.gov.au

For the public

The australia.gov.au website is primarily for the public and is your trusted source of government information.

There are lots of government websites and we know it can be hard to find the information you need. Australia.gov.au aims to put 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.

This website features a search engine that can search across most Australian government websites allowing you to access information from multiple agencies at once.

The australia.gov.au domain also serves as a memorable website address for government campaigns used in the media such as australia.gov.au/theline.

You will 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 this website. Our Australian Stories 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.

Additonally this website serves to highlight particular areas of government online presence, such as promoting government social media profiles, or government mobile applications "apps".

The Department of Finance is responsible for the development and ongoing operation of this website.
