Lockout laws in Queensland

The Queensland Government is planning to amend the liquor licensing laws in order to reduce the level of violence in areas such as Fortitude Valley in Brisbane.

Several studies have been carried out in areas where lockout and other provisions have been introduced, including:

  • a comprehensive comparative study of Newcastle and Geelong Dealing with alcohol-related harm and the night-time economy funded by the National Drug Law Enforcement Research Fund;
  • an Australian Bureau of Statistics research project to determine whether the January 2014 reforms to the NSW Liquor Act reduced the incidence of assault in the Kings Cross and Sydney CBD Entertainment Precincts.

These studies demonstrate the impact alcohol restrictions have on alcohol- fuelled ssault rates
