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.

About

​Map : Tasmap 1:100000 - Georges Bay
Distance : Vehicle Recreation Area​​​​
Rating : Difficult - for experienced four-wheel drive and motorbike users only. Deep bogs, steep slopes, soft sand are likely to be encountered. 

Peron Dunes is classified as a Vehicle Recreation Area used by all types of recreational vehicles, including 4WD vehicles, dune buggies and all-terrain vehicles. Care is necessary to avoid accidents. 

All vehicles must stay within boundary limits marked by signs about 1 km north-east and 3 km south of the entry point onto the beach. Beyond the limits at​ each end of the access point, along the ​beach and within the dunes are sensitive bird breeding areas. The dunes are also a sensitive ecosystem which can be damaged by both foot and vehicle traffic.  This can lead to ‘blowouts’ and damage to the sensitive beach environment. For this reason vehicular use is restricted to an area set aside at Peron Dunes.

There are no camping areas at Peron Dunes. Camping is available at ​Humbug Point to the north and Diana's Basin south of Peron Dunes.​
