So any cigarette smokers out there feel free to wonder down to Kambah…

Apparently they can’t now, the ACT Government has included the whole of Kambah into the non-smoking zone.

Thanks for this post. I was redirected by the police on my way to work and wondered what was going on (because I’m nosy like that). I knew where to come to find out!
