Safe Night Out Strategy

A consultation period occurred in June 2014 and responses from this have been considered. For information on surveys and feedback being gathered by the Queensland Government Statistician's Office, please visit the Safe Night Out Strategy evaluation page.

New initiatives are being rolled out to restore responsible behaviour and respect, stamp out alcohol and drug-related violence and ensure Queensland’s nightlife is safe for all.

The Safe Night Out Strategy is a comprehensive action plan based on extensive community consultation that will:

  • Change the culture—raise awareness of clear standards of behaviour for patrons, police and licensees, and educate young Queenslanders (grades 7-12) to promote responsible behaviour.
  • Change the law— increase policing powers, liquor licensing requirements and introduce penalties and compulsory counselling to make it clear bad behaviour won’t be tolerated.
  • Change the environment—provide safe and supportive places through Safe Night Precincts, ‘sober safe’ centres and more.

This comprehensive approach to deal with alcohol and drug-related violence recognises that everyone has a role to play, and is about patrons, venues, communities and the Government coming together to create a safe, vibrant culture for Queensland’s nightlife.
