Easter trading hours - patrons
- If you intend to enjoy a drink or play gaming machines over the Easter long weekend, you should be aware special restrictions are in place for licensed premises.
Good Friday Eve
- On the Thursday before Good Friday, all gaming machines must cease operating at 12 midnight. The sale and supply of alcohol is also only permitted until 12 midnight. While the bar must finish serving at this time, you still have until 12.30am to finish your drink and leave the premises.
- On Good Friday, no gaming is permitted on licensed premises. Also, you will be able to buy or be supplied alcohol from 10am but only in association with eating a meal prepared on the premises and eaten in an area of the premises ordinarily set aside for dining.
- A meal is defined as food eaten by a person at a fixed structure used as a table, with cutlery provided for the purpose of eating the food, and is of a sufficient substance to be ordinarily accepted as a meal.
- You can purchase alcohol for one hour before dining, while you are eating your meal and for one hour after finishing your meal.
Easter Sunday and Monday
