ANZAC Day trading restrictions

Other related content
LiquorBreweryWineryCheck

Trading hours on ANZAC Day vary for different gaming or liquor licences.

The Liquor Control Reform Act 1998 (the Act) includes restrictions on gambling and the supply of liquor on ANZAC Day (25 April). To see your ANZAC Day trading hours, check the details on your current liquor and/or gambling licence and any special conditions which may restrict your trading hours. 

While some exemptions apply, the Act restricts the supply of liquor between 12:01am and 12 noon on ANZAC Day. 
 
General trading hours for licensees on ANZAC Day are: 

  • general, on-premises, restaurant and cafe, packaged liquor or club licensees can supply liquor between 12noon and 11pm  

  • licensees that have been granted a coronavirus temporary limited licence can supply liquor between 12noon and 11pm 

  • producer’s licensees can supply liquor between 10am and 11pm 

  • Where a Venue Operator has been granted a temporary limited licence for ANZAC DAY, they are permitted to operate gaming machines for the times covered by the temporary limited liquor licence  
     

ANZAC Day trading restrictions do not apply to: 

  • licences held by the Returned and Services League or its sub-branches 

  • duty free shops and aircraft 

  • supplying liquor to people who reside on the premises 

  • wineries 

  • temporary licences issued by the Commission where it has specifically permitted the supply of liquor on ANZAC Day 

  • Pre-retail licensees 
     

Facilitating gambling or supplying liquor between 12:01am and 12 noon on ANZAC Day (25 April) is an offence and may result in enforcement action. 
 
Returned and Services League (RSL) Clubs and Sub-branches 
RSL Clubs who wish to extend their ordinary trading hours on Anzac must apply and get approval for an extension. 

Two up

The Gambling Regulation Act 2003 only permits the conduct of a game of two up on ANZAC Day, or in the seven days leading up to ANZAC Day, each year at any RSL club, sub-branch or any venue used by the RSL.

Ordinarily, the Victorian State Branch approves all RSL club and sub-branch applications to play two up. This includes two up games on ANZAC Day itself and commemorative functions seven days prior to ANZAC Day.
