If you believe that the landlord has applied to terminate your tenancy in retaliation for you having made an earlier application to ACAT or making a complaint to a government organisation, or having otherwise sought to enforces your rights, e.g. by seeking legal advice about your rights, then you may be able to defend the eviction on that basis. For details go to Tenancy Factsheet: Defending an Eviction.
