The Budget provides a picture of Australia's planned financial performance, and the Government's fiscal policy for the forward years.  This includes estimates of revenue and expenses for the Government.  Traditionally the budget attracts significant public interest as it outlines new policy initiatives that affect Australians.

The Central Budget website [external link icon] is the whole-of-government entry point for Australian Government Budget material. The site includes the current and past budget papers including the Budget Speech, Budget Strategy and Outlook, Budget Measures, Federal Financial Relations and Agency Resourcing.
