The warmth radiates throughout your campsite creating an inviting atmosphere that will make you forget all your troubles and woes.


Parks Allowing Campfires

Parks that have communal fire pits

A Communal fire pit is an excellent way to enjoy campfire activities while holidaying in a shared park. Not only is a communal campfire easier to manage than an individual campsite, but it also offers more potential benefits. This type of campsite often allows you to interact with other campers and explore the area together, while still providing a safe environment for all who use it.

Fire pits provide warmth and light, allowing people to stay cosy even when temperatures dip outside. They’re also great for cooking food or keeping drinks hot. And nothing beats roasting marshmallows over a glowing campfire!

Bushfire Safety in NSW

The New South Wales outback is very prone to bushfires, so when using a campfire or fire pit, there are some basic rules to keep in mind:

  1. Never leave the fire unattended.
  2. Supervise pets and children around fires.
  3. Avoid putting aerosol cans, glass, aluminium, or other explosive and toxic substances in the fire.
  4. Build the fire in a safe clear space, either an existing fireplace, raised fire pit, or within fire rings.
  5. When you are finished, ensure the campfire is fully extinguished and dispose of any rubbish properly.
  6. Also, consider bringing your own firewood, or using clean firewood supplied by the park as by law the collection of firewood from the park is not permitted. Firewood at some parks can be purchased from the kiosk or outside the parks.

Guests must comply with fire restrictions imposed by the park manager and or fire authority at the time of campfire.
