Right to Information

The Right to Information is the Queensland Government’s approach to giving the community greater access to information

The Queensland Government has made a commitment to provide access to information held by the Government unless on balance it is contrary to the public interest to provide that information.

The Right to Information Act 2009 aims to make more information available, provide equal access to information across all sectors of the community and provide appropriate protection for individuals’ privacy.

For more information, visit the Queensland Government's website.

Published Information
