Our smoke-free areas

Currently, all of Waverley’s beaches, Spring Street and Oxford Street Mall in Bondi Junction are smoke free. On 30 March, 2017 Waverley Council extended its smoke-free areas to include Hall Street, Bondi to help protect the community from passive smoke. This includes both sides of Hall Street between Campbell Parade and Glenayr Avenue, between 7am-9pm daily.

Council is committed to the health and wellbeing of our residents and visitors. According to Cancer Council Australia, tobacco smoking remains the leading preventable cause of death and disease in Australia but still claims the lives of 15,500 Australians every year.

We have consulted with local businesses and there is overwhelming support for the campaign. This new smoke free area follows on from the successful trial of smoke-free Oxford Street Mall, which started in December 2015 and was found to significantly reduce smoking rates in the area.

Our Council Rangers will continue working with the community to implement the campaign.
