Safety advice - Tobacco
You must be over the age of 18 years to purchase and smoke tobacco in Australia. With the health dangers of tobacco now recognised, Australian society is becoming less tolerant of smoking.
In Queensland, it is illegal to smoke in public areas such as bars, restaurants, indoor office areas, shopping centres, hospitals, schools, and many beaches and parks. It is important that you obey ‘no smoking’ signs if you see them as fines can apply.
