- Do not dig trenches around tents
- Take your rubbish home if rubbish bins aren’t provided; don’t bury or dump litter in the forest.
- Where drop toilets are provided, use them for their intended purposes only. Never use these toilets to empty chemical waste from toilets or for the disposal of general waste including cigarettes
- Campfires are permitted, provided the following guidelines are observed:
- The fire is in a fireplace or trench at least 30 cm deep – use existing fireplaces rather than create your own.
- The fire is not more than 1 square metre and 3 metres around the fire is cleared
- The fire is not left unattended and is put out before you leave
- Collect only fallen wood from the forest floor for fires – cutting down trees or damaging vegetation is strictly prohibited
- Fires of all types, including portable gas and liquid fuel stoves, are prohibited on days of TOTAL FIRE BAN
- It’s your responsibility to know if a TOTAL FIRE BAN is declared.
In most cases access to these sites in The Big RIver Camping area is possible with a 2WD and suitable for small caravans.
