A major crackdown on gatherings will see the closure of indoor venues, including pubs, clubs, sporting and religious venues from midday tomorrow in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Restaurants and cafes will only be allowed to offer takeaway services.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison slammed people who crammed onto beaches and into pubs and clubs at the weekend and said it forced the nation's leaders to impose harsher rules.

"When we all do not do the right thing, then it has real implications for others," he said.

The new measurers were agreed to at National Cabinet, which includes the Prime Minister, premiers and chief ministers, during a late Sunday evening meeting.

He warned the closures could continue for six months.
