Duplicate forms of identification, in Queensland such documents can be distinguished by a “D” on the end of the licence/permit number. When a duplicate form of ID is presented a second form of ID must be produced (credit card, etc.).

All false ID’s are to be confiscated and passed on to supervisory or management staff, who will forward them to the Liquor Licensing Division.

Minors may be on the premises if in the care of a responsible adult or guardian but may not consume or purchase liquor. Minors are not permitted to be at the bar or in the gaming room.

Entry is restricted to financial members, a guest of a member in the members company, a reciprocal club member or a proven bona fide visitor.

Queensland Law prohibits the consumption or purchase of liquor by persons who are minors, unduly intoxicated or disorderly. If a staff member is of the opinion that a patron is unduly intoxicated or disorderly, the staff member must not serve liquor to that person, and advise their Manager on Duty immediately.

Customers deemed to be unduly intoxicated will be refused service, offered water and a taxi, courtesy bus or responsible guardian will be called if required.

Bribie Island Bowls Club actively promotes and makes available water, non-alcoholic or low alcoholic beverages and food at all times.
