Dry Areas in Mount Gambier

Consultation has concluded

The City of Mount Gambier currently hosts five individual Dry Area Zones, each of which will expire in November this year. These areas are located at:

  • The City Centre
  • Vansittart Park Gardens and Oval
  • Dimjalla Park; and
  • A F Sutton Memorial Park

A dry area is a declared area where the consumption, and/or possession of alcohol is prohibited.

Council is required to make an application to Consumer and Business Services (CBS) for approval to extend its existing long term Dry Area Zones beyond the expiry date.

The CBS now allows applications for Continuous Dry Areas which are ongoing and do not expire after five years as they have previously. A Continuous Dry Area is considered permanent unless otherwise notified by Council and has the potential to save time and resources by removing the need to reapply every five years.  

As part of the application process, community consultation is invited regarding Council’s proposal to seek to have the five current Dry Area declarations extended as Continuous Dry Areas.
