Fire bans and restrictions

Fire bans in national parks

Open fires, liquid fuel and gas stoves are banned in all South Australia's national parks on days declared a Total Fire Ban by Country Fire Service (CFS).

Parks may be closed to visitors on Total Fire Ban days or days of high fire risk.

Fire restrictions in national parks

Fire restrictions will be declared during the fire danger season for all NPWS managed parks, reserves and wilderness protection areas.

People intending to visit the parks are encouraged to familiarise themselves with these restrictions as dates and conditions vary depending on their location or call the CFS Bushfire Information Hotline 1800 362 361.

No wood or solid fuel fires are permitted in parks during these times and some parks have year-round bans on wood fires.
