Community alcohol limits

If you're planning on travelling through Queensland, you need to know about alcohol restrictions.

Alcohol restrictions are in place in the discrete Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities across Queensland. They aim to help improve the health and well-being of all people living in these communities.

The restrictions either ban or limit the amount and type of alcohol you can take into a community.

What is a restricted area?

A restricted area is where alcohol restrictions apply. This includes the entire area controlled by the local shire council, unless an area is specifically included or excluded.

Homes are included in restricted areas. Beaches, wharves and riverbeds can also be included in the restricted area.

Please refer to each discrete community for further information on restrictions and penalties in place.
