width=227The Waverly Council came up with a unanimous decision to ban smoking within 10 meters of the outdoor cafés in this popular tourist spot.

This will ban all smokers to light up their cigars while sitting outside the cafés at Sydney Bondi Café Beach starting this July.

Councilor Kerryn Sloan says that the ban is for tourists who are not following the anti-smoking campaign attitude of the Australian.

These smokers usually come from other countries that still have smoking as a socially acceptable norm.

They usually sit down, grab some coffee, have a bit of a chain smoke and move on.

It's the same story for the locals. They tend to use this place as a smoking area, not an eating area.

This ban will also be imposed all parks and playgrounds this July.
