Search

The site search facility can be found in the top right hand corner of all web pages on this site.

To perform a search, enter one or more words in the search box and select 'go' (or press the Enter key on your keyboard).

As the search tool is not case-sensitive, there is no need to use capital letters. Using words such as a, an, the, or, and of will not improve the results of the search.

Any documents containing all your words will be displayed first, followed by documents that contain some of your words.

Each result will include:

  • a number indicating its position in the ranking
  • the document title shown as a link that can be selected
  • a short summary of the document
  • the web address of the information displayed as a link that can be selected
  • the size of the document in kilobytes.

Consistent user experience

The Queensland Government has developed a consistent user experience standard, which is used on all government websites.

The purpose of the standard is to ensure that visitors:

  • can find the information they need quickly and easily
  • do not have to learn new navigation methods when using different Queensland Government agency sites
  • can move from one site to another with familiarity.

To make this consistent experience a reality, the standard requires that:

  • agency web pages are laid out consistently, with elements such as the navigation, search button and agency name always in the same place
  • navigation is based on what visitors are likely to be looking for, rather than on how departments are organised
  • the underlying techniques used to create the pages ensure they are accessible to as many people as possible.
