Racing, gaming and liquor

The Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries receives, processes and determines applications in accordance with the legislation.

The department provides a licensing service for the liquor and gambling industries. Applications are considered and determined on their merits in accordance with the relevant legislative requirements.

Audits and inspections are conducted to verify that the provision of gambling is conducted in a responsible and lawful manner. We also regularly audit and inspection licensed premises to regulate the sale, supply and consumption of liquor. This helps to minimise harm and ill-health to the public.

Additionally, regular inspections ensure that licensed premises are operating and being maintained to a standard that meets consumer expectations.
