An assessment of late night alcohol restrictions in Queensland (ARC Linkage Project administered by Deakin University) (2016–2020)
Alcohol-related harm is a major social order issue which requires evidence-based policy. This project capitalises
on a unique window of policy adoption within Queensland to investigate the introduction of 2am cease of alcohol
service for licensed venues across the entire state, assessing its impact, identifying modifiable elements and
developing policy advice. Using the most sophisticated models to date, including outlet density, enforcement,
demographic variables and other variables, we build on our team¿s extensive work to build unique datasets
including archival data, foot-traffic counting, key stakeholder and patron interviews to evaluate impact and identify
policy lessons for other jurisdictions in Australia and internationally.
