About this site


The ACT Government Information Portal - www.act.gov.au - offers integrated access to information about Canberra and the region, from Australian Capital Territory (ACT) Government agencies, regional local government and the non-government sector.

The primary aim of the site is to provide easy online access to government information by enabling users to find what they are looking for without having to know which government agency to contact.

You will find a concentrated body of ACT Government material through the site. www.act.gov.au currently signposts more than 85 ACT Government web sites and uses both metadata and free text indexing to ensure that information can be accessed using a variety of approaches.

The Australian Government provides advice on internet security on Stay Smart Online. Stay Smart Online is designed to provide all Australian online users with practical tips and advice on e-security. This website contains basic information on how to secure your computer, best practice tips for smart transacting online, and information on keeping young people safe online.

Access Canberra - a business unit within the Chief Minister, Treasury and Economic Development Directorate - administers this website on behalf of the ACT Government.
