Applying for a liquor or wine licence

The Office of Liquor and Gaming Regulation (OLGR) regulates liquor and wine licences and permits applications in Queensland.

This guide explains how to apply for a liquor or wine licence, including:

  • fees and charges—the amounts vary depending on the type of business
  • advertising requirements
  • when a community impact statement (CIS) is required
  • when a risk-assessed management plan (RAMP) is required
  • decisions about liquor licence applications that have received community comments.

Applications for new liquor or wine licences may take up to 3 months to be approved. Remember to account for this in your planning as it may influence when you can open your business.
