Fire ban: Campfire restrictions are in place
From 21/10/2019, last reviewed 28/10/2019

​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 the east coast 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.

The Bridport to Bellingham 4WD traverse is a coastal track, offering opportunities for bird watching and surf fishing, with a number of designated, un-serviced campsites available along the route. Campfires are not permitted on beaches, bring a fire pot outside of fire restrictions.

The track is marked with orange triangles to be followed throughout the traverse. Sections along side of the track are signed to exclude entry into sensitive bird breeding sites.

The Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service have installed car parks on both ends of the traverse, one at Bellingham (end of Gees Marsh road) and one at Bridport (end of Sandy Points road). These are to provide an area for recreational users to deflate tyres. An information panel with general authority to access the site is also provided at each car park. Entry is subject to conditions as signed. Conditions of entry include but are not limited to, all vehicles and bikes being ​registered.​
