Guide to Accessing Court Transcripts in Queensland

Court transcripts are an integral element of the legal system and obtaining a copy of a transcript for a court hearing can be useful for many reasons. Court transcripts provide an irrefutable written record of spoken words during a judicial hearing. They act as authoritative texts for judicial reviews, appeals, legal research and future literature.

As of 10 October 2022, to obtain a transcript for your own court hearing, you are required to submit an application through QTranscripts, which has replaced the original transcript provider, Auscript. QTranscripts is an online government platform which can be accessed via your QGov account or myGovID.
