Report graffiti

If you see graffiti, you can call a 24 hour hotline or make a report online.

If the graffiti is on a motor vehicle, trailer or caravan or involves racism or religious threats, reports can only be made by calling police on 131 444.

Otherwise, you should make the report as soon as possible with the following:

  • if the graffiti is on property, you will be asked if the property belongs to you and whether it is residential or a business
  • location of the graffiti
  • some brief details about the graffiti
  • your contact information
  • photos of the graffiti if you wish to provide them

Reports are forwarded to local councils and other authorities so the graffiti can be removed.

To make a report, call 1800 44 22 55 or fill in the online form.
