Smoking Bans in QLD National Parks 2:52pm, Thu 08 Dec 2016

From the 1st of February 2017, smoking restrictions will apply to Queensland's national parks.
Smoking restriction in parks are one of several Queensland Health initiatives to reduce
smoking rates in Queensland, limit people's exposure to second hand smoke and make more
outdoor places smoke-free. For the benefit of all park visitors, from 1st February 2017, smoking is prohibited within 10 metres of most visitor facilities in national parks. This includes any picnic table, barbecue, shelter shed, toilet, in use campsite, information centre, jetty, landing stage or boat ramp.

It doesn't mean you cannot smoke or use e-cigarettes when visiting parks-it means you cannot
smoke or vape close the facilities that visitors use, where people commonly gather. On the
spot fines can apply.
