You must comply with commercial outdoor dining smoke-free laws so that people who come into contact with your business are protected from second-hand smoke.

Smoking is banned in:

  • outdoor dining areas, and
  • areas within 4 metres of a pedestrian entrance to, or exit from, a cafe or restaurant (the '4 metre law').

You must display 'No smoking' signs in outdoor dining areas.

To understand your outdoor dining smoke-free responsibilities and to order free signs, visit the NSW Health website.
