|Licensed premises are only permitted to trade until midnight on Thursday (24 April) before ANZAC Day, even if they normally stay open longer. While service from the bar must finish at midnight, patrons will have until 12.30am to finish drinks and leave the premises. Gaming machines are not permitted to operate after midnight.|
|Gaming machines are not permitted to operate between midnight Thursday 24 April and 1pm on ANZAC Day, Friday 25 April.
On ANZAC Day, with the exception of the circumstances below, licensees must not serve alcohol before 1pm unless with a meal in an area normally set aside for dining, in which case trading may begin at 10am. The sale of takeaway liquor is not allowed before 1pm on ANZAC Day.
Licensed RSL and Services clubs can trade from 5am as part of their ordinary trading hours on ANZAC Day to recognise and support dawn services. No application is required. However, gaming machines are not permitted before 1pm under any licence.
Two-up may be played legally in a licensed RSL or services club on ANZAC Day. RSL and services clubs do not need permission from any regulatory authority to play two-up on ANZAC. Other licensed premises can also conduct two-up on their premises as part of an official function for ANZAC Day, if it is approved in writing by an RSL sub-branch.
All other licence holders can apply for an Extended Hours Permit (XHP) to trade from 5am to 1pm on ANZAC Day but only if the licensee has entered into an agreement with an RSL or Services Club to sell liquor on behalf of the club at the club’s ANZAC Day event held on the licensee’s premises. In this instance, there is no application fee for an XHP, and the need to serve meals is removed if an agreement is in place. Evidence of the agreement must be lodged with the application.
