Fire bans: Park Fire Ban
NPWS has put in place a park fire ban for Coolah Tops National Park which remains in effect until the end of March. During park fire ban periods, all campfire and solid fuel (wood, heat beads, charcoal, briquettes, hexamine) barbecues and stoves are prohibited. Gas and electric barbecues and cookers are permitted as long as:
- They're under the 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)
For more information about fire bans in parks and reserves including your responsibilities, visit the NSW National Parks fire safety page.
The commissioner of the NSW Rural Fire Service may declare a Total Fire Ban for particular areas within NSW or statewide, this can change on a daily basis.
If a Total Fire Ban is declared, different rules apply. If you would like any further information in relation to Coolah Tops National Park please contact the
NPWS Pilliga Forest Discovery Centre at 6843 4011.
Penalties apply for non-compliance.
