Extreme changes have been put into effect regarding smoking laws in Queensland. It is clear that these changes are dramatic and immediate according to the ABC. Here is an excerpt from the below link:
“As of today, lighting up will be outlawed at or near childcare and aged care facilities, bus stops and taxi ranks, public pools, children’s sporting venues, skate parks and outdoor malls.”
Furthermore, as of February 2017, smoking will also be banned within 10 meters of campsites, picnic areas and boat ramps – all of which very common places to find people smoking.
Considering this, we highly recommend that you make yourself fully aware of these laws as failing to head them will most likely result in fines or potentially a criminal conviction.
