National parks have been added to the list of places where Queenslanders will no longer be able to smoke.
From Wednesday, smokers will need to move 10 metres away from visitor facilities if they want to light up.
National Parks Minister Steven Miles said the new restrictions applied to picnic tables and barbecues, as well as other facilities like toilet blocks, and included occupied camp sites.
"These restrictions will protect the health and well-being of park visitors, and we hope smokers will consider their own health and the health of others and observe the new restrictions," Dr Miles said in a statement.
"We want to support people who want to stop smoking, and protect those who choose not to smoke.
Anyone breaching the 10 metre rule can be fined $243 on-the-spot by park rangers.
Queensland's Chief Health Officer Dr Jeannette Young supported extending smoking restrictions to national parks, saying the existing restrictions have seen Queensland's adult daily smoking rate drop to 12 per cent.
"Experience shows that strong smoking bans increase people's enjoyment of smoke-free public places and provide smokers with a clear understanding of where they should not smoke," Dr Young said in a statement.
Dr Miles said the restrictions could also help prevent bushfires from improperly discarded cigarette butts, as well as reducing litter from butts.
