If you wish to leave a partially completed application, press 'Save and Close' and log out. When you log back in and click on the 'My Submissions' link at the top of the screen, you will find a list of any applications you have started or submitted.

You can also download your application as a PDF at any stage. Click on the 'Download PDF' button located at the bottom of the last page of the application form. 


Don’t leave it until 5pm to submit your application. Submit early and avoid the risk of missing the deadline.

Allow enough time for uploading supporting files. Files can be up to 25MB each; however, we do recommend trying to keep files to a maximum of 5MB – the larger the file, the longer the upload time.

Once you submit your application, you will receive a confirmation email with a PDF copy of your submitted application attached. The email will be sent to the register user for that account.

If you do not receive a confirmation of submission email then you should presume that your submission has NOT been submitted. Hint: check the email hasn’t landed in your spam or junk email folder.

For queries about the guidelines, deadlines, or questions in the form, please contact us on (02) 8289 6520 between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday during business hours or email and quote your submission number.
