  • 32 Public hearings
  • over 1,500 Private sessions
  • close to 8,000 submissions
  • over 17,000 phone inquiries
  • over 700 engagements across Australia
  • published 14 Issues papers and received over 700 responses to those Issues papers
  • published 18 Research Reports and seven Progress Reports.

The information sessions will launch on 16 March 2023 in Brisbane and will travel to all major capital cities across Australia.
