Smoking restrictions

Smoking restrictions in Queensland's national parks

Smoking is prohibited within 10m of most visitor facilities in national parks. This includes picnic tables, BBQs, shelters, toilets, in-use camp sites, information centres, jetties, landing stages (such as pontoons) and boat ramps.

Smoking restrictions in our national parks are one of several Queensland Health initiatives to reduce smoking rates in Queensland, limit your exposure to second-hand smoke and make more outdoor places smoke-free.

This doesn’t mean you can't smoke or use e-cigarettes when visiting our national parks—it just means you can't smoke or vape close to facilities that others use. These restrictions protect your health and well-being.

The new smoking restrictions are being rolled out as part of Queensland Health’s changes to smoking laws in the Tobacco and Other Smoking Products Act 1998, to make public places smoke-free.

On-the-spot fines can apply.
