Right to Information

Legislation replacing the Freedom of Information Act 1992 came into effect on 1 July 2009:


Right to Information is the Queensland Government's approach and commitment to provide access to information, unless it is contrary to the public interest to provide that information. Right to Information aims to:

  • make more information available
  • provide equal access to information across all sectors of the community
  • provide appropriate protection for individuals' privacy.

We are committed to providing open access to information about our services, activities and business operations. Much of this information is provided in our corporate documents, which are identified in our publication scheme.

Where information is not available online, you can request the information or contact the department.
