Balcony safety

Be safe on balconies

Behaving irresponsibly on balconies is extremely dangerous. If caught you can be evicted from your accommodation or arrested by the police.

Take care on balconies and remember:

  • Don’t sit on, lean over, climb or hang off the side of balconies. Accidents happen – you could slip and fall.
  • Never ‘room hop’ from balcony to balcony. One wrong move could prove fatal.
  • Avoid overcrowding. Take it inside or head down to the beach party.
  • Don’t throw objects – Schoolies is a very busy time and there may be people walking below. Objects thrown or dropped from a height can become dangerous projectiles when they reach the ground.

FACT: If you balcony-hop you risk eviction, arrest and your life.
