We love Tassie’s fresh air – we think it’s one of our greatest gifts!
To help preserve this and improve our guests experience our terminal forecourt is to be kept smoke free.

If you wish to smoke there are two designated smoking areas – these can be found outside the southern end of the terminal (follow signs on terminal building) and at the far end of the drop off/pick up area. Both areas are clearly signed and equipped with cigarette bins.

Cigarette butts are the most littered item in Australia. Butts littered on streets get washed into stormwater drains and into waterways where they leach toxic chemicals such as cadmium, lead and zinc. Butts are also commonly mistaken for food by marine life. Please keep Tassie beautiful and put your butts in the bins provided.
