Details

Campfires and barbecues using wood, charcoal or other solid fuels are banned in Belaglo State Forest until at least the end of the official fire season in March 2017 to reduce the risk of bushfires.

Campers and picnickers can only bring and use gas stoves during the ban, except during declared total fire bans.This ban applies every day, not just on days when total fire bans are declared, so we are asking people to plan ahead and bring gas appliances.

Visitors should also be prepared for days when total fire bans are declared, as all fires including gas fires are prohibited on total fire ban days. Information on total fire bans is available on the Rural Fire Service website.
