Fire ban: Campfire restrictions are in place
Applies from 4/12/2020

​​​​Campfire restrictions are in place for this location. This means you will not be able to use campfires, fire pots and other solid fuels stoves. Heavy penalties will apply to illegal campfires.​ Gas stoves and gas barbecues are permitted. 

The dry summer 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.

Further locations may be added if the fire risk in escalates over summer.

For more information please check the Campfire and safety - Fire restrictions pages.

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.​
