Alcohol restrictions

Drinking alcohol is restricted in certain areas across the Yarra Ranges. Alcohol restrictions typically apply in public spaces, council land and on roads.

Types of alcohol restrictions:

  1. Time based restriction
    In some areas, alcohol may only be consumed between 9pm and 10am the next day. This restriction applies to specified areas all year round.

  2. Complete restriction
    In some areas, alcohol consumption is forbidden at any time. This restriction applies to specified areas all year round.
