Liquor restrictions are in place in many parts of the State in relation to purchasing, consuming or possessing alcohol.
Liquor restrictions are implemented as a measure towards minimising alcohol-related harm in Western Australia. In particular, the Liquor Control Act 1988 provides for the following types of restrictions:
- Section 64 Restrictions are imposed by the Director of Liquor Licensing, where it is in the public interest. These restrictions: may limit or prohibit the sale of alcohol from licensed premises by imposing conditions on liquor licences; and can be imposed on all licensed premises within a particular area of the State.
- Section 175 Restrictions are declared by the Governor of Western Australia on the recommendation of the Minister for Racing and Gaming. These restrictions apply to a declared area of the State and may prohibit the bringing in, possession and consumption of liquor in the declared area. Penalties apply to people who contravene the restrictions applicable to a declared area.
