What is the Right to Information?

Right to Information is the Queensland Government's approach to giving the community greater access to personal and non-personal information. Under the Right to Information Act 2009 (Qld), the public has a right to access information held by the government unless on balance it is contrary to the public interest to provide that information.

The Right to Information Act 2009 and Information Privacy Act 2009 came into effect on 1 July 2009, replacing the Freedom of Information Act 1992.

The Right to Information reforms promote a culture of openness, accountability and transparency within the Queensland Government, balanced with appropriate protections for certain information, including personal information.
