Western Australia's largest Aboriginal community applies for liquor ban

Date posted: 21 December 2011

Western Australia's largest Aboriginal community, Bidyadanga, is applying to have the State's toughest alcohol restrictions introduced. The council at Bidyadanga, which is 200 kilometres south of Broome, has voted to apply for a Section 175 liquor restriction, a move which has the full support of the community. The ban will make it illegal to possess or consume alcohol in Bidyadanga.
