Requirement to display liquor licence details

Once your application for a Queensland liquor licence is approved you'll be issued with a licence document. Your licence contains the following information:

  • name and licence number of the premises
  • licensee name
  • address of the premises
  • licensed area description
  • permitted trading hours
  • trading conditions.

You must keep your licence on the licensed premises and, if requested, present it to any Office of Liquor and Gaming Regulation (OLGR) compliance officer or a police officer who inspects your premises.

If your licence document is destroyed or misplaced, you must apply for a replacement licence and pay the relevant fee.

Details you must display on premises

Licensees must display a sign containing the following details on a conspicuous part of the premises, in letters at least 15mm high:

  • name of licensee
  • name of premises
  • nature of the business (e.g. restaurant, hotel, club)
  • permitted trading hours, including any approved extended trading hours.

This is a requirement of the Liquor Act 1992.
