According to Office of Liquor and Gaming Regulation (OLGR) Queensland -

In accordance with the Tobacco and Other Smoking Products Act 1998, premises that hold a Commercial Hotel or Community Club licence, or a casino that holds a Commercial Special Facility licence, may designate part of the licensed outdoor area a Designated Outdoor Smoking Area (DOSA).

  • no food is permitted within the area. However, a drink is allowed to be taken in
  • no entertainment can be provided in the DOSA, including television screens, music speakers, bands and pool tables
