Campfire guidelines

  • Light fires only in the fireplaces provided or use a portable gas or fuel stove.
  • Ensure fires are never left unattended and are completely out before you leave.
  • During Summer and Autumn Total Fire Bans are common; this means no fires are to be lit including portable cooking appliances.
  • Always check for Total Fire Bans (1800 240 667) and fire conditions prior to your walk and carry a small radio or mobile phone.

Hiking guidlines

  • Stay on track - prevent trampling.
  • Use a fuel stove - it’s better for the bush.
  • Carry it in, carry it out; don’t bury or burn it.
  • Leave hike-in campsites as you find them.
  • Carry out human waste where possible, otherwise bury human waste 15 cm deep, 100m from water and campsites.
  • If you are planning an extended walk from this campsite, tell someone where you are going and when you aim to be back. Trip intentions can be registered at Brambuk – The National Park and Cultural Centre.
