Outdoor public dining areas throughout South Australia joins are now smoke-free at all times food is offered or provided.
By “outdoor dining area” the State Government means any unenclosed public area in which tables or chairs are provided for customers to use to eat and drink.
Café or bakery snack-foods, considered to be any pre-packaged foods intended to be consumed between meals, are not included in the ban.
South Australia now joins most of the country in its anti-smoking legislation. The first state to impose a ban was Queensland in 2006, while the New South Wales government introduced a ban last July. Victoria will be the last state to conform, when it implements a ban in August 2017.
