Smokefree and Vapefree

Smokefree and vapefree tile

This summer we’re going smokefree and vapefree in a number of beachfront locations.

We'll be trialling smokefree and vapefree zones at:

  • Queenstown Bay
  • Wānaka waterfront
  • Frankton Beach
  • Glenorchy waterfront

The aim of this trial is to discourage smoking and cigarette litter, and encourage both locals and visitors to look after our breathtaking views and waterways.

Following the trial and the feedback we receive from you, we should have an idea of which areas could become future smokefree locations.

We will use this information to draft a comprehensive smokefree and vapefree policy which will align with the government's goal of becoming a smokefree nation by 2025.

Smokefree Aotearoa 2025 isn’t about banning smoking. It’s about taking action against tobacco so that by 2025, hardly anyone will smoke. Being smokefree and having smokefree environments help support the health and wellbeing of our families and whānau.
