Discover WA Public Sector Data

Data WA provides an easy way to find, access, and reuse datasets from the Western Australian Government.

The Data WA Portal brings together a listing of Western Australian Government datasets available in one searchable website and helps you connect with the data community.

The Western Australian Government aims to make data more accessible to the public and to industry to stimulate innovative approaches to service delivery.

Successful data collaboration is a joined effort. The WA Open Data Policy is owned by the Department of the Premier and Cabinet and implemented by Landgate through Data WA as a whole of government service.

What is open data?

The Open Data Policy considers data 'open' when it is:

  • released and available for the general public (not for exclusive use)
  • easily discoverable
  • in formats that are modifiable, non-proprietary and machine-readable
  • licensed to enable reuse and redistribution
  • available at no cost to users

The Policy applies to agencies and organisations covered by the Public Sector Management Act 1994, including agencies listed in Schedules 1 and 2. To find out how your agency can contribute, contact info@data.wa.gov.au.
