Vaping is likely to be banned in 11 areas of Melbourne's CBD and surrounds where cigarette smoking is already banned, including the Bourke Street Mall and the Tan and Princes Park running tracks.

The move would extend the definition of smoking, under local laws, to include using an e-cigarette. The City of Melbourne has been working for months to extend its localised smoking bans to include vaping, in the face of opposition from civil libertarians, smokers and vapers, and those who argue vaping is a safer alternative to cigarettes and can help people quit altogether.
