QCAT commenced on 1 December 2009, the result of combining 18 tribunals and 23 jurisdictions into one tribunal.

What they do

QCAT resolves disputes and makes and reviews decisions about:

Regional services

QCAT services are delivered throughout the state through the Magistrates court with approximately half of the matters being heard outside of Brisbane.

The local Magistrates Court is the first point of contact for suburban Brisbane and non-Brisbane based QCAT clients. All courthouses outside of the Brisbane CBD can:

  • provide information about QCAT over the telephone or at the counter
  • supply application forms for all matter types
  • accept completed application forms and supporting documents
  • accept the payment of application fees
  • conduct proceedings for minor civil disputes.

The tribunal may consider other arrangements such as videoconferencing or teleconferencing if you are unable to access your local courthouse.
