BAN ON SMOKING IN OUTDOOR DINING AREAS

From 1 August 2017, State Government legislation banning smoking in outdoor dining areas in Victoria will come into place.

This will mean smoking will be banned:

  • in outdoor areas at hospitality and food venues used for eating food. This includes alfresco dining areas, courtyards and beer gardens during times food is being eaten, or is available to be eaten
  • in all outdoor areas at food fairs. A food fair is an event where the principal activity is the supply of food for consumption at the event
  • within 10 metres of a food stall or food vendor at organised outdoor event (other than a food fair).
