The City of Melbourne is committed to protecting the community from passive smoking by expanding smoke-free areas in and around the city.

The smoke-free areas project began with a smoke-free pilot in one of Melbourne's well-known laneways, The Causeway. After a successful six-month trial in 2013, the laneway became permanently smoke-free in May 2014.

The project has seen a total of 11 smoke-free areas implemented across the municipality.

This includes Bourke Street between Elizabeth Street and Russell Place (including Bourke Street Mall), which became smoke-free from 4 October 2019.
