Smoke-free tour of Tasmania

From 1 March 2012, Tasmania will have some of the toughest smoke-free area laws in the country. You now cannot smoke in many public areas where people - especially children - gather.

Smoke-free areas help protect us from harmful second-hand smoke. They are also important in reducing the number of young people who take up the habit.

We ask that you respect these smoke-free areas, and the people around you.
