Campfires are only permitted at designated campgrounds within designated fireplaces. Campfires are prohibited during seasonal fire restrictions. Never leave your campfire unattended - it is prohibited. For campfire safety and how to check whether any restrictions are in place see Campfires and fire restriction.
Always check local signage for campfire restrictions before lighting a campfire. Bring your own water and firewood. It is best to have a fuel stove with you for cooking, as restrictions can change.
For the safety of everyone - completely extinguish your campfire before you depart and ensure no hot coals remain. Remember - Soak it. Stir it. Soak it again.
Please take all rubbish away with you.
There are some firepots available throughtout the APCA, however they are limited and it is advised to bring your own. No fires are to be lit on the ground under any circumstances. Wood may only be collected from the beaches, fallen wood should not be taken. Visitors are encouraged to bring their own firewood.
