Legal

Minors 

The Site is not intended for individuals under the age of 18. 

In NSW, laws regulate the sale, consumption and provision of alcohol to people under the age of 18 years (minors). These laws are covered in the Liquor Act 2007 and the Summary Offences Act 1988.

Under The Liquor Act 2007 , section 117 states the supply of alcohol to minors is strictly prohibited. A person (including a parent or guardian) must not sell or supply alcohol to a minor in any licensed premises in NSW.

Second party sales

Second party sales occur when a person purchases alcohol on behalf of a minor. The person supplying the alcohol to the minor (either on licensed premises or elsewhere) is committing an offence which can attract fines of up to $11,000 and/or 12 months imprisonment (or a $1,100 penalty notice). Delivery will be refused for second party sales.

Remote sales

The remote alcohol sales provisions of the liquor laws apply to alcohol sold to the public via the internet, telephone, facsimile and mail orders. These provisions recognise that remote alcohol sales, particularly online sales, are a potential source of supply for minors and that extra controls are needed.

The delivery is intended for the adult who placed the order (include their name in the instructions) or to another adult at the delivery address accepting the delivery on behalf of the adult who placed the order. Delivery will be refused to anyone under the age of 18 and proof of age may be required.

Maximum penalties of $3,300 apply to a person who requests a minor to take delivery of a remote sale. Maximum penalties of $2,200 apply if a minor takes delivery of a remote sale.
