Extended trading has been put in place for hotels and eligible registered clubs for special cultural and sporting events in January and February 2019, listed below.
Venues that are already approved to trade during or beyond the extended hours are not impacted by these special arrangements, and can trade as usual.
The extended trading will not change Sydney’s last drinks and lockout laws, or the cut off times for the sale of takeaway alcohol state-wide.
Licensees must also comply with any individual trading restrictions or other special conditions that apply to their licences under the Liquor Act 2007.
