Fire bans: Park fire ban
A solid fuel fire ban is in place in this park (see exemptions below) from Saturday 1 September 2018 and remains in effect until Sunday 31 March 2019, unless otherwise extended or removed.
The fire ban applies to all areas of park. However, Big River and Spring Gully camping and picnic areas will be exempt from the park fire ban from Saturday 1 September 2018 until Sunday 14 October 2018.
From Monday 15 October 2018, the fire ban will apply across the whole park with no exemptions.
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.
