James, I really dont want to get into a debate about it being illegal as thats boring.. We cant win can we? When the British come over here and get drunk all you Aussies whinge that we drink to much.. we all we want is a smoke, you whinge too! and you have the cheek to call is whinging poms?!?

Is there anyone nice out there with any help?

I heard it's prohibited to smoke in pubs and restaurants as well. Is this true?

Alistare,
Unfortunately you are already here, otherwise I would have said don't bother coming to Oz -we don't need another dope laden dead head. One day you will wake up - or maybe not !!

Try to get your kicks from reality, you know; fresh air, friendly people and wide open spaces not from behind a sleepy doped out stupor.

And the no smoking in pubs is great - why should we have to breath in the foul lung air from the selfish inconsiderates, whether they be locals or vistors.

What is the preoccupation with drinking till you get blotto !! Seems to be the stereotype for the young 'British' tourist.
A close friend - young lady (28) from Wales who is no prude is absolutly ashamed of the way many Brits behave when away from home, she quoted how disrespectful and abusive they are in Spain especially - maybe a few are getting out here too.

By all means, have a few drinks but not until you make a complete fool of yourself and fall over your own shadow.
Drink sensibly over good conversation, stay in control so you can enjoy the experience.

There is no debate to get into. It's illegal regardless of what you or I may think.

As for me, I've never complained about English people drinking too much. Nor have I called you or anyone else a whinging pom.

oh my gosh. im so sorry i offended you all with a harmless post regarding a bit of green. im as offended as your friend when it comes to british morons on holiday and tend to stay as far away from them as possible. What i didnt expect was a tirade of abuse from supposedly open minded people with a lecture on how to live my life. What is the harm of sitting in the sun with friends and chilling out? Aussies seem to enjoy drinking beer in the park.. but sorry, thats a perfectly legal drug that kills far more people that herb ever will.. i drink in moderation and enjoy a smoke in moderation.. im also working in your country paying vast amounts of tax into your system.. im not your average brit on holiday but then as you dont know me, you are more than welcome to jump to conclusions.

sheesh.

Nice day today wasn't it?

So smoking in pubs is selfish....now that's a nice statement which really makes no sense at all. Don't go to pubs than, people who don't smoke!
I know that doesn't make sense as well...but just to give you an idea about the other statement;)
It's probably because you are 57 and afraid of dying

Everyone chill out, get yourself to Nimbin if you fancy a smoke, its not actually legal there but its very very relaxed and everyone does it. Its like the Amsterdam of Oz! Drinking smoking straight west coasting..
