NT First Territory to Introduce Alcohol Floor Price


As of 1 October the Northern Territory has become the first Australian jurisdiction to have an alcohol floor price.

Canada and Scotland recently introduced similar floor prices to reduce alcohol harm and according to public health experts, other state governments should follow the example by introducing floor prices for alcohol.

The NT government has set the minimum charge at $1.30 per standard drink which will have the biggest impact on the cost of cask wine.
