Listing Australia's government-run Facebook and YouTube pages - I need your help

Similar to my listing of twitter accounts from Australian Federal, State and local government agencies, I'm attempting to put together a listing of Australia's government-run Facebook pages and YouTube channels.

This is a big job and I'd appreciate your help.

If your agency operates one or more Facebook pages or YouTube channels, or you are aware of any that are operated by other agencies, please either add them as a comment below (feel free to be anonymous) or tweet or email me the details.

I am interested in any that are operated by a Australian Federal, State or local government agency or other publicly funded body.

Please pass on this post to your colleagues. Having a list of the social media channels used by government agencies helps other agencies build the case to use them for their own needs.
