Survey reports of cultural funding by Australian governments and Australians' participation in cultural activities carried out on behalf of the Australian, state and territory governments.

Reports are prepared by a consultant from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS). The reports present estimates of Australian public funding for arts and cultural activities, facilities and services by the Australian Government, state and territory governments and local governments.

Previous releases can be viewed on the ABS website or on Trove through the National Library of Australia (2000 to 2017 Reports and 2017–2020 Reports).
