By law, smoking is banned within four metres of the entrances to certain Victorian Government buildings.
This law covers buildings occupied either wholly or in part by:
- Parliament (but not electorate offices)
- Victorian courts, including the Supreme Court, County Court, magistrate’s court, Children’s Court and Coroners Court
- public service bodies, including all Victorian Government departments and administrative offices, and the Victorian Public Sector Commission
- special bodies, including all police stations.
The following diagram shows an example of where the smoking ban applies.
