Park-specific conditions

Facilities are not provided in the camping areas—campers must be fully self-sufficient.

Bring your own drinking water, clean, milled timber for firewood and rubbish bags so you can take your rubbish with you when you leave.

Bury all toilet waste (and paper) 20cm deep and at least 100m from waterways, tracks and camp sites. Preferably bring a portable toilet to minimise pollution in this area—dispose of toilet waste appropriately.

Camp safely!

Avoid camping near hazardous trees—always look up and around for dead and dying trees and branches before choosing your camp site. Take particular care at The Wall.

Camping is not recommended during periods of high winds due to increased danger from falling trees and branches.

Use fire-rings provided for campfires. Never leave a campfire unattended. Stay with children and don't let them sit too close. Don't let a campfire turn into a wildfire!—keep campfires small.

Be prepared for cool nights, especially during winter.

Be aware that mobile phone reception is not available in the camping areas.
