Laws silencing victims of sexual abuse will be amended, the state government revealed on Tuesday.
The law, which quietly passed state parliament in February, meant that any survivors whose perpetrator was convicted would be unable to speak out using their real names, including in the media.
However, after widespread criticism, attorney general Jill Hennessy announced amendments would allow victims to share their story without court permission.
"Surviving sexual assault is not a source of shame-our laws will enable victim-survivors can speak publicly, on their terms," Ms Hennessy said. "We will protect victim-survivors' rights to share their story - giving them the opportunity to heal and advocate for change so that we rid society of this violent behaviour."
"I thank the victim-survivors and advocates who offered their experience and expertise. Your insight and courage helped shape these laws and will protect the rights of anyone who speaks out about sexual assault."
