Government Gazettes

A gazette is an official publication used to notify the public on the actions and decisions of the government. Australian governments at Commonwealth, State and Territory level publish gazettes.

Notices published in the government gazettes cover a broad range of aspects of government regulation and are generally published because of a requirement of the law. Acts, regulations and other legislation are notified in gazettes.

The Norfolk Island Regional Council (NIRC) publishes its Gazette notices in the local paper The Norfolk Islander, and are also available to view online on Councils website - please refer to the related content section at the bottom of this page.

The type of information you might expect to find in a gazette notice include (but are not limited to):

  • statutory appointments
  • government job advertisements
  • government tenders
  • road closures
  • information relating to planning and development applications
  • information relating to the court of petty sessions
  • government orders of various kinds
  • private notices of a legal nature e.g. bankruptcies, company registrations and windings-up, probate, by-laws of companies under royal charter
  • government purchasing matters
  • local government matters
