Fire ban: Campfire restrictions 2022 - 2023
Applies from 20/12/2022

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Campfire restrictions are in place for this site.  This means you will not be able to use campfires, pot fires and other solid fuel stoves. Gas stoves and gas barbecues are still permitted.

Unattended or poorly constructed campfires can escape and become bushfires. Campfire restrictions ensure everyone has a safe and enjoyable camping experience.

For more information see our Campfire restrictions news page, the Campfire safety and restrictions webpage, or view the State Fire Restrictions map for 2022-2023.​
