Norfolk Island state services transition

On 22 October 2021, the Australian Government and the Government of Queensland signed the Intergovernmental Agreement on State Service Delivery to Norfolk Island (IGA) to support the delivery of Queensland services to Norfolk Island.

Under the IGA, Queensland will provide health support services to the Norfolk Island Health and Residential Aged Care Service (NIHRACS) and will operate the Norfolk Island Central School (NICS) from 1 January 2022 .

The partnership with Queensland will provide stability and certainty for the community for these essential services. Additional state services that are not currently delivered on Norfolk Island will be introduced over time

The continuity of essential services during transition is a key priority and the Australian Government is working with the Queensland and NSW Governments on transition planning. The Norfolk Island community will continue to be informed and engaged as this work progresses, in line with the Community Engagement Framework.
