Smoking is now banned at all of Victoria’s patrolled beaches, in the areas between the red-and-yellow lifesaving flags and within a 50-metre radius of a red-and-yellow flag.
The ban applies during patrolled times, when one or more red-and-yellow flags installed by a Life Saving Victoria club are in place.
Some councils have also introduced local laws that prohibit smoking in public outdoor places, including other beach areas, and signs will indicate such bans.
