Fire ban: Campfire restrictions are in place
Applies from 4/12/2020

​​​​Campfire restrictions are in place for this location. This means you will not be able to use campfires, fire pots and other solid fuels stoves. Heavy penalties will apply to illegal campfires.​ Gas stoves and gas barbecues are permitted. 

The dry summer conditions have increased the risk of unattended or poorly constructed campfires escaping and becoming bushfires. We have a duty of care to our community and want to ensure everyone has a safe and enjoyable camping experience.

Further locations may be added if the fire risk in escalates over summer.

For more information please check the Campfire and safety - Fire restrictions pages.

​There are three serviced campgrounds with toilet facilities in the Arthur-Pieman Conservation Area. Manuka and Peppermint both have water on site and are located close to the Parks and Wildlife Visitor Centre​​ on Arthur River Road. ​ Prickly Wattle can be found approximately 1 kilometre south of Arthur River, on Temma Road. All local water should be boiled for 3 minutes or treated before drinking. ​

There are a number of un-serviced sites along the coast with access to limited fresh water. Visitors are advised ​to bring sufficient water with them.  Use existing sites and leave the campground as you found it; camping outside of designated areas may impact on highly sensitive natural and Aboriginal Cultural Heritage sites.

​The Peppermint and Manuka Campgrounds have access friendly, flushable toilet facilities. Take care on grassy areas. ​
