    Hi.

    I'm just wondering if it's illegal to draw and/or write on footpaths under Property Law, especially in the ACT?

    I've searched and can't really find a definite answer. We're just wanting to write peaceful messages in public places. The chalk would not be permanent, just the usual playground pavement-type of chalk which would wash away after rain.

    Thanks for any help provided! :)

    Well, from reading the links it would seem then that chalking anywhere other than the prescribed areas nominated for graffiti then it would be an offence, sadly!
