The gas fueled BBQs are no longer operational at Minyon Falls picnic area and Minyon grass picnic area. The gas bottles in both locations have been stolen and facilities vandalised.

We apologies for any inconvenience and recommend visitors to bring their own portable gas BBQ equipment for the medium term.
