I doubt you will be able to have a wood fire this time of year, way to much tinder up there, we used our gas bbq etc when we were up there.

If it gets as hot as it normally does over Xmas....I doubt you'd want a fire Jarrod.

Thanks for the replies guys!

Being a bunch of males (with partners) in our mid to late 20's, sitting around a fire is the main attraction to camping! What else could we poke at? :grin:

I was just assuming that with the fire danger in the area being so low it wouldn't be a problem (see link).

NPs tend to have their own rules about open fires Jarrod....

Do a search.....the one I did said that all fires are banned in Mungo Bush but check it out for yourself.

http://www.environment.nsw.gov.au/Natio ... x?id=N0026

From the website:
This popular campground has a boat ramp and a variety of walking tracks, so you can discover the park from both land and water. It has open areas ideal for caravans, as well as secluded tent-based sites. There are walking tracks, including the Rainforest Loop and Tamboi walk. A short walking track opposite the camping area leads to the beach. Wood and solid fuel fires are not permitted. The park's main waste and recycling service is here.

I'd be a bit concerned that you need a fire to poke as your only form of entertainment!!

Surely a bunch of mates being together out camping relaxing and chatting, laughing, eating, drinking, sleeping, fishing etc would be entertaining in itself.

Thanks for the replies and sorry for not clarifying earlier, but I do realise that Mungo Brush does not allow wood fires. I keep forgetting that this forum is for Mungo Brush and not the Myall Lakes in general.

I noticed a few of the other sites close to Mungo Brush did not have the same fire restriction (Dee's Corner for exmaple), so my question was more related to those areas. Sorry for the confusion.

Jarrod....you will still need to check that there are no fire restrictions for this time of year....irrespective of where you camp.

The NPWS in NSW seems a bit precious with their fire rules sometimes. I was told not to light the 3-way fridge in NP once!
Koziosko
The restriction doesn't have a lot to do with fuel load or the amount of rain but rather the number of ways to get campers (and other visitors) out of harms way should a fire break out. Often the only way/s out are through bush or along roads/tracks that the Rural Fire Service will need to use to get to the fire. The last thing the guys need is Norm and Beryl towing a caravan behind the Magna in their way...

Trust me people and their vehicles do funny things where there is a fire around!

Hi Everyone

I am new to camping and this site. Just wondering if I need to take sand pegs up to Mungo Brush this weekend for camping.

Thanks Kay
