Sale of knives and controlled items - Queensland


New laws will come into effect in Queensland from 1 September 2024 banning the sale of knives and particular controlled items to minors.

Retailers will also be required to securely store particular controlled items such as double-edged knives, machetes, tomahawks and axes and will be required to display signage regarding age-restricted items. In addition, any advertising of knives or controlled items that suggests them 'suitable for combat' will be prohibited.
