Department of Internal Affairs, Head Office more detail…


From 1840 until the late nineteenth century, the Colonial Secretary's Office was the hub of the colonial government, with a wide range of responsibilities. As the colonial government grew, these responsibilities were gradually passed on to newly formed departments, until by the early twentieth century the Colonial Secretary's Department, now known as the Department of Internal Affairs, no longer occupied such a central position within government. During its history, the Department has been home to a miscellany of functions, including: supervision of local government; public health; agriculture; naturalisation and citizenship; cultural matters; civil defence; gaming laws ; cinematograph censorship; carriage & storage of dangerous goods; wildlife; distinguished visitors; promotion of national arts; and constitutional matters.
