Register of Surplus Commonwealth Land Potentially Suitable for Housing and Community Outcomes

This register contains details of surplus Commonwealth land that may be  suitable for housing and community facilities. It is not a full list of surplus Commonwealth land holdings.

The register identifies the owner agency, location and size of each property, and the target time (financial year) for release, as reported to the Department of Finance. The target time for release is indicative only and may change at any time.

Consistent with the Commonwealth Property Disposals Policy, not all properties on the register will be released for sale on the open market, as some sites may be sold to other government entities by negotiation. We  recommend that you check with the listed owner agency to confirm the information listed for any individual property.
