Abstract

This article documents a search process that was undertaken, using publicly available sources, to identify the existence of contaminated sites within Australia. The results reveal that there is an overwhelming lack of publicly available information about Australian contaminated sites, despite the belief than many thousands of contaminated sites are believed to exist within Australia. The results of the research highlight the overwhelming lack of accountability that exists in relation to land-use within Australia, and the authors rely upon the results to make a call for government to take immediate action to address important community rights-to-know.
