Drink Tank

Aussies share their views on alcohol

Does Australia have a problem with alcohol? Why are so many Australians drinking at risky levels? And why aren’t they better informed about the long-term health harms?

Today on Drink Tank we continue our coverage of FARE’s Annual Alcohol Poll.

We speak with FARE’s Director of Policy and Research, Trish Hepworth about a few key findings, hit the streets to talk to everyday Australians and catch up with FARE’s Chief Executive, Michael Thorn to unpack the 2019 Poll findings.


Drink Tank aims to generate meaningful commentary and debate about alcohol policy, and to provide a platform for all members of the Australian community to share their views and concerns.

Our goal is for the Drink Tank community to engage in robust discussion about alcohol, highlighting a broad spectrum of views and voices, and ultimately to raise the profile of alcohol as an issue of national importance.
