BBQ and camp fires

It is possible to light an open fire for recreational purposes, such as a BBQ or camping with permission of the land owner.

Before you light any camp fire, you should check the Fire Danger Rating to understand potential bush fire risk.  If a Total Fire Ban is in place, you can’t light any fires, but you can use a gas or electric BBQ provided you meet safety requirements.  Contact the NSW Rural Fire Service for information on the Fire Danger Rating.
