WTF! Either I've been living under a rock (happens sometimes), or this one slipped through without much fanfare. No smoking in national parks | NSW National Parks "From 1 May 2016 the smoking ban applies to all parks, with some exceptions. It applies to picnic areas, campgrounds, accommodations, beaches, lookouts, walking tracks, and on national park roads. The ban doesn't apply to some commercial lease or licence areas, or to private residences located within a park." I wholeheartedly agree with the premise of reducing litter, discarded butts p**s me off no end but, FFS! NSW, the State run by your 90 year old spinster aunt who's never enjoyed a day in her life. She's absolutely destroyed Sydney's nightlife and is determined to show all us sinners the errors of our ways. How much of our freedom are we prepared to surrender to the Puritans? Motorcycle riding is also dangerous. How long before She decides we need to be "protected" from that too?
