Gazette notices are published from 9.00am to 5.00pm on working days.

The turnaround time for standard notices, from submission to publication, is two working days, or earlier if approved by the Gazette Office. A later date and time for publication can be scheduled.

Large or complex notices may require a longer lead in time. It would be appreciated if we could be notified of these well in advance and have the notice content at least 7 – 10 days before publication.
