Fire bans: Fire Ban - Wollemi National Park
A solid fuel fire ban is in place in this park and remains in effect until Wednesday Sunday 31 March 2019.
The fire ban applies to all areas of the park except for Colo Meroo, Coorongooba, Dunns Swamp, Newnes and Wheeny Creek picnic and campgrounds.
During park fire ban periods, all campfire and solid fuel (wood, heat beads, charcoal, briquettes, hexamite) barbecues and stoves are prohibited. Gas and electric barbecues and cookers are permitted as long as:
- they're under direct control of an adult
- the ground within 2m of the barbecue is cleared of all flammable materials
- there's an adequate supply of water (minimum of a bucket).
If a Total Fire Ban is in place, please contact the local park office before using a gas and or electric barbecue or cooker.
