In some regional and remote areas, tourists may be an unintended source of supply for volatile substances.

Tourists may be carrying substances which can be used for the purpose of intoxication. In some towns and communities these may be stolen from vehicles or taken from wherever rubbish is disposed of, such as bins and rubbish tips. It is important that tourists know that these substances need to be stored and transported securely, and disposed of in a responsible manner.

For more information on how to raise awareness of tourists to the VSU issue, see the Tourist strategy page of this website.
