Australia strives to be a responsible global citizen committed to safe and secure operations in space and on Earth. Our aim includes transforming and growing a globally respected Australian space sector that meets international obligations and norms. 

Space sustainability, responsibility and safety are at the core of achieving this goal.

Australia is supporting the peaceful use and exploration of outer space, including through regulation and the development of innovative technology solutions. 

Our department recognises the First Peoples of this Nation and their ongoing cultural and spiritual connections to the lands, waters, seas, skies, and communities.

We Acknowledge First Nations Peoples as the Traditional Custodians and Lore Keepers of the oldest living culture and pay respects to their Elders past and present. We extend that respect to all First Nations Peoples.
