Freedom of information

 The Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act) gives members of the public a right to access our documents.  You can seek access to:

  • documents about your personal affairs, regardless of the age of the documents
  • documents held by us, not older than 1 January 1989.

The protection of the public interest and private and business affairs may cause some documents to be exempted from access.

The FOI Act does not apply to documents which are available for a fee as part of a public register or are documents which are available for purchase or already publically available. 

For further information on what you can access and how to make a request, please view the Freedom of Information Fact File(PDF, 168KB) or go to

Please contact the Freedom of Information Officer on 5950 1207 (Tuesday, Thursday and Friday) if you have any further questions concerning FOI.
