Which parks allow campfires?

Many national parks do not allow solid fuel fires (wood and charcoal) at any time. To find out which parks allow campfires use our find a park tool and refine your search to ‘Campfires (seasonal restrictions apply)’, this will display all the parks which allow campfires.

In parks where fires are permitted, they are only allowed outside of the Fire Danger Season for that region. Each park is unique, please check the safety tab on the individual park page for Fire Danger Season dates and rules specific to that park. Or refer to this full list of park fire restrictions.

Please note, you need to bring your own firewood as the collection of firewood within national parks is prohibited. Please ensure the firewood is free from dirt and weeds, to avoid bringing pest species into the park

Which parks allow barbecues?

Many national parks, but not all, allow gas and liquid fuel fires, such as barbeques, throughout the year (apart from on days of Total Fire Ban). Each park is unique, please check the safety tab on the individual park page for rules specific to that park. Or refer to the full list of park fire restrictions.

You can bring your own barbeque or use one of our barbeque facilities. To find out which parks have barbeque facilities use our find a park tool and refine your search to ‘BBQ facilities’, this will display all the parks which have barbeque facilities.
