Land valuations

The Office of the Valuer-General determines assessed land value annually on 1 July.

  • For Council districts where a revaluation is undertaken, new land values are determined and a notice of valuation sent to the property owner. The revaluation schedule is available from the Office of the Valuer-General.

  • In Council districts where a revaluation is not undertaken for the year, market based adjustment factors are applied to land values to determine assessed land v​alue.
