Graffiti Management

What is graffiti?

Graffiti can be defined as destruction or damage to property caused by spraying, writing, drawing, marking or otherwise applying paint or another marking substance or scratching or etching. Graffiti is the deliberate application of messages or images on property, without the permission of the rightful owner.

Council has a zero tolerance policy in relation to its own buildings and facilities and encourages residents to implement their own anti-graffiti measures at home.

What do I do if I have graffiti on my property?

If your property is affected by graffiti, it should be reported to police in the first instance. The next step is to remove the graffiti as quickly as possible.

What assistance can I get from Council?

To create a culture of shared responsibility and action and to encourage rapid graffiti removal, free anti-graffiti removal kits can be collected from Visitor Information Centres or Council offices.

What do I do if I see graffiti on Council property?

Please contact Council as soon as possible on 1300 005 872.
Graffiti tagging and vandalism costs Queensland’s local councils millions of dollars each year. These are funds that would otherwise be spent on providing local projects like parks, walk ways and improved roads.​
