About Us

Provides a range of smoking cessation courses and seminars to assist smokers to quit smoking. Also offers training for health and community professionals. Call back service available.

Quitline provides a free, confidential telephone service to assist you in the process of quitting smoking. You can call Quitline on 13 7848 (13 QUIT) for the cost of a local call from a landline (with higher costs from mobile phones) to speak to a specially trained quit smoking advisor.

Quitline advisors can provide information, advice, support and encouragement to assist you to plan and develop strategies to quit smoking and stay quit.

You can call Quitline as many times as you wish, or you can use the Quitline call-back service. Quitline advisors will talk to you about receiving ongoing calls to support you throughout your quit smoking journey.

For example, the first day can be the day before or on your quit smoking date, one week after you have quit and then to follow up 3, 6 and 12 months after you have quit.

ACT Quitline Advisors are available:

  • Monday to Friday: 7am to 10:30pm
  • Saturday, Sunday and public holidays: 9am to 5pm


You can leave a message 24/7 (remember to leave your name and phone number) and an advisor will call you back.
