About us

Overview

Established in 2008, Infrastructure Australia is the Australian Government’s independent advisor on nationally significant infrastructure investment planning and project prioritisation.

Our governing legislation, the Infrastructure Australia Act 2008 (Cth), defines our role and responsibilities in guiding nationally significant infrastructure investment and reform.

Reforms to Infrastructure Australia 

In December 2022, the Australian Government released the findings and recommendations of the Independent Review of Infrastructure Australia, along with its response. 

The purpose of the Review was to ensure that Infrastructure Australia was positioned to achieve its core purpose — to provide quality, independent advice to the Australian Government on nationally significant infrastructure that supports the economy, and addresses the challenges and opportunities of the future.

In December 2023, amendments to the Infrastructure Australia Act 2008 (Cth) were enacted by the Australian Parliament to give effect to the major elements of the Review. The legislative changes affect the majority of Infrastructure Australia’s work program and include transitioning its Accountable Authority from a Board to a Commission. Interim Commissioners have been appointed while the Australian Government undertakes a rigorous, merit-based selection process to appoint three Commissioners as required under the Act.
