Releasing of balloons is strictly prohibited. In Queensland, the release of balloons into the environment is considered littering under the Waste Reduction and Recycling Act 2011—whether released deliberately or by accident. The law does not differentiate between different types of littered material and whether the waste is biodegradable or not.
A person must not release an unsecured balloon containing helium unless the
Balloon is –
released unintentionally and without negligence; or
released inside a building or structure and does not make its way into the open air
released for scientific, including meteorological, purposes; or
a balloon aircraft that is recovered after landing.
