Seasonal campfire restrictions commence in national parks and reserves

Restrictions on campfires, pot fires and other solid fuel stoves will come in to place from Saturday 28th September at identified Parks and Wildlife Service campgrounds around the State to help reduce the risk of bushfires.


Community safety and preventing bushfires from starting is a priority of the Parks and Wildlife Service.


The seasonal campfire restrictions apply to:


• All coastal reserves from Bellingham to Bridport, the north east coastal strip from Waterhouse Conservation Area to Mt William National Park, Snaky Creek and Tooms Lake Conservation Areas, and Maria Island National Park;


• All other national parks and reserves in the Break O’Day, Glamorgan – Spring Bay, Sorell and Tasman Municipalities.


• Further areas may be added if the fire risk in those areas escalates over spring and early summer.


Gas stoves and gas barbecues will be permitted.


The PWS want to ensure everyone has a safe and enjoyable camping experience and appreciate assistance from the community in complying with fire restrictions.
