2021-46: Plant Exports – Updates to the department’s website

An Industry Advice Notice (IAN) has been issued to advise industry that the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment is updating its website.

Summary of changes and key points

On 18 October 2021, we will be merging our 3 departmental websites:

  • awe.gov.au
  • agriculture.gov.au
  • environment.gov.au

All existing content will be moved to awe.gov.au.

There will be temporary redirects in place so you can still find what you’re looking for.


We are transforming our website as part of a multi-year, user-centred project to improve the user experience.

The first stage of the transformation involves merging the existing agriculture.gov.au and environment.gov.au websites into the new awe.gov.au site from 18 October 2021.

Temporary redirects will be in place from the old websites to the new site.

Over the next few years, further engagement with website users will ensure the content is easy to use.

Enhanced functionality, the most up-to-date content and a better user experience will be the key outcomes of this transformation project.
