Section 175 liquor restrictions

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;
  • may prohibit the bringing in, possession and consumption of liquor in the declared area; and
    may provide for penalties to apply to people who contravene the restrictions.

While enjoying the many attractions Western Australia has to offer, be aware that restrictions are in place in many parts of the State in relation to purchasing, consuming or possessing alcohol.

These restrictions have been implemented as a way of minimising alcohol-related harm in Western Australia.
