Finding Australian legislation

Find Commonwealth, Victorian and state Acts, bills and explanatory memoranda.

Legislation from other States


Older interstate legislation

The State Library has good collection of older legislation in print but does not collect the reprinted legislation. To find what interstate legislation we hold try a search like this "south australia" AND (statute OR acts) or tasmania AND (statute OR acts) for the relevant state.

In some cases it may be better for us to ask our sister State Library in the relevant state for a copy of the required legislation as they may have a more complete set with all the reprints. 

Try the relevant State Library with your enquiry if we do not have the full set of legistation.


Staff at the State Library of Victoria do not offer legal advice. Every effort is made to provide up to date, accurate and relevant legal information but this is not intended to replace qualified legal advice.
