The Victorian Government recognises the importance of sporting, recreational and social clubs to local communities. Many clubs share facilities such as clubrooms, function areas and sporting fields.
Clubs may apply for approval to allow unaccompanied underage persons on their licensed premises for sporting and ancillary activities.
Licensed venues that supply alcohol for consumption on-site are required to provide free drinking water to their patrons.
All licences granted in Victoria have a set of standard obligations that a licence holder must meet in order to comply with the requirements of the licence. This page summarises the standard obligations.
Under the Liquor Control Reform Act 1998 (the Act), licensees are required to display certain signage (also referred to as posters) around their licensed premises.
Liquor fees are a standard business cost for all licensees, and as such all licensees should factor this fee into their business planning.
Liquor licences are due for renewal by 31 December each year. Each licence incurs a separate fee and a number of factors determine how much a licensee is required to pay.
If you do not have a copy of your approved plan contact the VCGLR.
Information to vary your existing liquor licence or permit.
Holding a liquor licence is a privilege, not a right, and selling alcohol comes with very real and serious obligations. New entrant training is one way licensees can fully understand their obligations under Victoria’s liquor licensing laws.
