The Queensland Government is committed to building a trusted data ecosystem that makes important and non-sensitive data open for anyone to access, use and share. Our commitment to open data is articulated in the Queensland Government open data policy statement.
To help agencies find the data they need, the Queensland Government has created a Queensland Government Closed Data Portal (pilot). For access, email email@example.com (government log in required).
The Open Data Portal is a publicly available resource for users to access, modify, and share Queensland Government data (in accordance with the data’s designated licence).
The Department of Resources provides a range of publicly available resources for users to access spatial data.
The Queensland Globe is an online interactive tool that turns physical, geographical and spatial data about a location into a map format. It combines data about roads, properties, topography, land valuations and a range of natural resources in an easy to consume format.
For example, the Queensland Globe Health Services topic provides an interactive map of hospitals, emergency facilities, allied health centres, aged care facilities and more.
Queensland Government agencies can request a new layer or topic by contacting the support team firstname.lastname@example.org
QSpatial allows users to discover, display, select and download data of interest. Detailed metadata accompanies most data sets which provides agency contact details to obtain more information or request data. Data is available in a variety of formats.
QTopo provides online access to Queensland topography (including both natural and man-made features) and allows users to customise their own maps.
Smartmap Information System
Smartmap Information System (SMIS) provides information about Queensland property boundaries, valuations, sales data and survey information (for a fee).
Queensland Government agencies can apply for free access by emailing email@example.com.

The Queensland Health Statistical Services Branch is responsible for collecting, processing, analysing and disseminating statistics relating to the health of Queenslanders. The website provides information on commonly requested data collections (PDF)including links to additional information about the datasets and contact details for custodians. There is also information on the Master Linkage File (MLF) which contains permanently linked references to multiple health-related data collections.
Queensland State Archives (QSA) holds permanent records of enduring historical value for the Queensland Government and local governments. These records include letters, images, reports, telegrams, photographs, maps, architectural drawings. The QSA website provides information on how to search and access open public records.
QSA only holds records that were created or received by Queensland government agencies. A lot of other historical information can be found and accessed with other organisations. For example if you are looking for birth, marriage and death certificates, try the historical birth, marriage and death databases at the Department of Justice and Attorney-General.
