Party Notifications

When you are celebrating a special occasion your party should be fun, safe and trouble free.  Here are some tips to help keep your party enjoyable without being spoiled by uninvited guests and upset neighbours.

  •  Plan your party, give out invitations to invited guests and clearly state time and location.
  • If you are having amplified music, notify your neighbours or if you wish you can invite them.
  • At midnight lower the music volume.
  • Alcohol should not be served to underage guests.
  • Overcrowding can cause discomfort to your guests. So invite the amount of guests to suit the venue.
  • Notify your Council to see if there are any restrictions.
  • Notify your local police (131 444) and CoSafe (1300 26 72 33)
    of your party.

Hosting a Party

  • You have a duty of care towards your guests, you are responsible for their safety and welfare.
  • Parking of cars should be checked by the host to ensure all vehicles are legally parked and not obstructing neighbours.
  • Abundant food and water should be available to your guests at all times throughout the party.
  • Encourage your guests to drink water and eat between alcoholic drinks.
  • Have mid strength or light beer on hand, use cans instead of bottles and stubbies.
  • Help guests arrange lifts or taxis, don't let them drive if they have been drinking.  Have them stay over if they cannot get home safely.


Always remember to notify CoSafe and the police of all parties.

Restrict your invite list to the number of guest your venue can support (shelter, toilets and refreshments etc)

Avoiding using social media websites to advertise your party.

If you have underage guests at the party, attempt to create a list of contact numbers of their parents/guardians.
