The Queensland Government strives to make its public web resources compatible with a range of browsers, devices and platforms.

This is achieved by developing web resources according to international web standards and best practice, and regular testing across a range of different browsers.

The content on the page you came from is accessible to all browsers and internet devices, but may not display well in browsers which do not comply with these standards. If you are experiencing problems with any of our pages, please let us know.

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

Portable Document Format

To view Portable Document Format (PDF) files, you will need to have Adobe Reader installed. This can be downloaded free-of-charge from the Adobe website.

Use the Adobe Reader to:

  • View a document by selecting the link text. The document will load into the reader.
  • Save a document for later viewing by right-clicking your mouse on the link text and selecting Save Target As and saving the file in your preferred location.

If you have a Mac with a single button mouse:

  • Save a document for later viewing by holding down the control key while you click your mouse on the link text. Select Save Link As or Download Link to Disk and save the file in your preferred location.

 


 

Microsoft Office files

To view, save and print Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint files you need an Office 365 paid subscription or a free Microsoft account

You will need to install the relevant Office apps (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) on your computer or mobile device.

You can also store Office files in OneDrive or Dropbox and Office Online will open them in your browser.

Alternatively, you can use a non-Microsoft product such as Google Docs, however some features may not be available. You will need a free Google Account to use Google Docs.

Visit the accessibility section for details about navigating this site using assistive technologies.

The Queensland Government has developed a Consistent User Experience Standard which is used on all government agency websites.

The purpose of the standard is to ensure that visitors:

  • can find the information they need quickly and easily
  • do not have to learn new navigation methods when using different Queensland Government agency sites
  • can move from one site to another with familiarity.

To make this consistent experience a reality, the standard requires that:

  • agency web pages are laid out consistently, with elements such as the navigation, search button and agency name always in the same place
  • navigation is based on what visitors are likely to be looking for, rather than on how departments are organised
  • the underlying techniques used to create the pages ensure they are accessible to as many people as possible.

Here you’ll find some basic tips to protect your privacy and reduce the ability for people to see what you do online.

The ‘Close this site’ button

Some pages on this website include a ‘Close this site’ button. Use this button to quickly hide what you are looking at. You might find this helpful if someone comes into the room or looks over your shoulder and you don’t want them to know what you’ve been looking at.

When you use the ‘Close this site’ button, it immediately closes this website and opens the Google search page in a new window.

The ‘Close this site’ button doesn’t delete your browser history. This means that if someone checks your browser history on your computer or mobile device, they will be able to see everything you looked at on our website.


 

Clear your browsing history regularly

Web browsers keep track of your online activity through your browser history, cookies and caching. This is so you can find websites you’ve visited before, but it also means other people can see this data.

To protect your privacy, it’s a good idea to clear your browsing history regularly. You can choose to delete everything or only some things.

Find out how to clear your browsing history in:

For other browsers and devices, check the provider’s website.


 

Use private browsing

Private browsing is an easy way to hide your browsing habits. If enabled, when you close your browser, all browsing history and stored cookies from future browsing sessions will automatically disappear.

However, the sites you visited during your current browsing session will record your browsing activity. Your internet service provider will also record this information. Any files you download using private browsing won’t be deleted, so other people can access them if they use your device.

For other browsers and devices, check the provider’s website.


 

Accounts and passwords

Don’t let your browser auto-save your passwords. While the auto-save function may be convenient, it gives anyone who uses your device access to your accounts.

When you are using an account with a password (e.g. your social media or email account), always log out before leaving the website.


 

Using other computers and devices

If you are worried about someone looking at your internet use, consider using a computer or device that they can’t access.

This might be a computer at your local library, your work computer, or a family or friend’s device. But again, don’t auto-save any passwords and make sure you log out of your accounts when you’ve finished using the computer.
