Welcome to the Gambling Research Australia Website and Clearinghouse

Gambling Research Australia (GRA) is a partnership between the Commonwealth, State and Territory Governments to initiate and manage a national gambling research program structured around the following five research priority areas:

  • helping individuals set their limits including access to cash and pre-commitment
  • responsible gambling environments
  • gaming machine standards-developing better consumer protection
  • a preventative and early intervention strategy targeted at those at risk of problem gambling
  • development of harm minimisation measures for interactive gambling.


The Secretariat to GRA is provided by the Office of Liquor, Gaming and Racing, Department of Justice, Victoria. The current, five-year Gambling Research Australia research program (2009 - 2014) was established via a Memorandum of Understanding signed by all gaming/gambling ministers in June 2009.
