Smoking on station

Smoking is prohibited in all Commonwealth buildings, vehicles, plant and equipment, which includes all the buildings and vehicles in Antarctica and Macquarie Island.

At each station, smokers are directed to an outside van designated as the ‘smokers’ hut’ and its cleanliness is the responsibility of all those who use it.

Smoking in cold porches is not allowed as the smoke is drawn back into the building’s air conditioning system.
