Enjoy the fireworks for Australia Day and stay safe

Stay safe this Australia Day by enjoying legal and controlled fireworks displays around Queensland.

Going to fireworks displays controlled by licensed fireworks contractors is a smarter, safer choice than putting yourself and others at risk with illegal fireworks.

Fireworks are dangerous explosives which can cause serious or permanent injury, or death. Licensed fireworks contactors are professionals who are bound by strict safety laws to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.

Severe penalties apply to anyone caught illegally using or possessing fireworks. If you know of anyone selling or using fireworks illegally you should contact the Queensland Police Service or your local explosives inspector. Illegal fireworks can be surrendered by calling 1300 739 868 to arrange for them to be collected.
