Navigation and Search

Queensland Government logo

All Queensland Government websites display the Queensland Government logo in the top left hand corner on their websites. This logo is a link to the Queensland Government home page.

Contact us and Queensland Government search

At the top right hand corner of each page you will find a link to the contact us page for general enquiries, and the Queensland Government search facility.


The footer menu contains the Queensland Government legal and privacy notices, information on the access keys utilised through this site and information on multilingual services (if required).


The site search facility can be found in the top right hand corner of all web pages on this site.

To perform a search, enter one or more words in the search box and click the search button (or press the Enter key on your keyboard).

As the search tool is not case-sensitive, there is no need to use capital letters. Using words such as a, an, the, or, and of will not improve the results of the search.

Any documents containing all your words will be displayed first, followed by documents that contain some of your words.

Each result will include:

  • a number indicating its position in the ranking
  • the document title shown as a link that can be selected
  • a short summary of the document
  • the web address of the information displayed as a link that can be selected
  • the size of the document in kilobytes.
