Useful Links

Welcome to our library of Australian statutes.

Clicking on the name of an Act or Regulation below will generally take you, in the case of Federal legislation, to the version in the ComLaw legal information retrieval service maintained by the Australian Attorney General's Department and, in the case of State legislation, to the version in AustLII. There you will be able to read, search or download a copy of the legislation. In those instances marked with an asterisk, the legislation is not available on ComLaw/Austlii and the link will take you instead to an alternative site with the legislation.

We check these links regularly to ensure that they are up to date. If you find one that is out of date, or if there is an Act or Regulation that you think ought to be included on this page, please contact us and let us know.
