Fire ban: Campfire restrictions are in place
From 21/10/2019, last reviewed 1/1/2020

​Campfire restrictions are now 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.

Parts of Tasmania are experiencing the driest conditions for the past three years with traditionally wet or damp gullies now dry. An above average fire season has been forecast for the east and south eastern parts of Tasmania due to warmer and drier conditions.

These 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.

Each campsite is numbered and camping must only take place at these numbered sites. Campsite bookings are not required. The maximum stay permitted is one week.

​Composting toilets are provided. To ensure they work correctly it is important not to place any foreign objects, portable chemical toilet contents or rubbish into the toilet system.

Fires may only be lit in the designated fireplaces provided, however the use of fuel stoves is recommended to reduce environmental impacts. Firewood is not supplied. Vegetation including dead branches from within the conservation area, must not be used as firewood. Chainsaws are not permitted in the conservation area.

On total fire ban days any naked flame, even a gas stove, is not permitted.​​
