Access and Inclusion

The Court is committed to making its information, services and facilities accessible to people with a disability and people with language difficulties.

The Court’s website is designed in line with accessibility standards and various accessible methods have been devised for contacting the Court. Accessible facilities are also available in our building for people visiting our Registry, hearing or conference rooms.

We welcome feedback on how we can improve access and inclusion opportunities for people with a disability. To provide feedback, you can contact the Registry on (08) 9420 4467 or
