Selling Takeaway Liquor in Queensland – Detached Bottleshops
The sale of takeaway liquor in Queensland through a retail outlet such as a bottleshop is restricted to holders of Commercial Hotel licences. Each licensee can apply for up to three detached bottleshops within 10 km of the main licensed premises (or further in some remote areas).
Amplified Entertainment on Licensed Premises in Queensland
To provide amplified entertainment on licensed premises a licensee must provide an acoustic report, carried out by a suitably qualified person, to OLGR. The acoustic report will include recommendations of maximum noise levels at the premises.
If an acoustic report is not provided, the liquor licence is likely to include a condition limiting the noise at the premises to 75db(C) when measured approximately three metres from the source, which is not much louder than normal conversation.
