Find a notice in the Gazette

If you are looking for a notice published in the Gazette you will need to understand the indices and how the Gazette is archived. Weekly Gazettes are combined into volumes. The indices are a record of each Gazette volume.

Understanding the indices/indexes

Indices are a record of all entries published in the combined Queensland Government Gazette. Indices are available every 4 months as a separate document:

  • January to April
  • May to August
  • September to December.

Using the indices

You can find online copies of the gazettes on the Queensland Government Publications Portal. These are available individually and grouped into publication sets including:

  • Extraordinary Gazettes by month
  • General and all other Gazettes by month.

For example, to find where a notice was Gazetted under the Building Act, follow these steps:

  1.  Search for the year of publication: 'gazette indexes 2015'.
  2. Open the publishing time period e.g. September—December 2015.
  3. Find the page numbers for the Building Act notice listings (e.g. p57, 73, 158, 209, 224).
  4. Open the gazette from the Gazette notices listing for 2015.
