You can get a national government grant in Queensland or Western Australia, as there are national grants offered to the entire country. There are also local and state grants in Queensland or Western Australia alike, which are only available to the people in designated areas. Although national government grants offer a better selection of programs, there may be less competition for state grants, and they may be better suited to the people of the area. It is best to look for grants you can use at all levels before deciding on which ones to write proposals to. If you know what you want money for and how much you want you will have an easier time looking for a program. Also make note of qualifications associated with each grant.
