Party smart and safe this festive season

Released 17/12/2018

Canberrans are encouraged to party smart this festive season to ensure that everyone has a good time and gets home safely.

With work parties, festivals, school formals and end-of-year celebrations in full swing (and New Year’s just on the horizon) the city is buzzing with holiday cheer.

Access Canberra has put together an online guide of party smart and party safe tips from across the ACT Government so Canberrans can make the most of their nights out and stay safe.

The guide provides a list of transport options, events, tips for students (and parents) planning for their formal night, as well as what to do and where to go if you need a bit of extra help when you’re out and about.

With this summer expected to be a scorcher it also includes information on beating the heat when out and about, particularly when alcohol may be being consumed. Information is also available on the signs and symptoms to look out for when it comes to heat-related illness – so you can keep an eye on yourself and your mates.

Finally, Access Canberra would like to give a shout out to the CBR Night Crew who support our community by providing information and support when people are out on the town.

Stay safe and have fun Canberra!
