Total Fire Ban in place for Inskip Peninsula Recreation Area

Applies until 29 November 2019.

This alert applies to the following parks:

Until further notice, lighting of all types of fires is prohibited in the Inskip Peninsula Recreation Area.

This fire prohibition is in place due to current fire danger conditions and will remain in place until the risk of wildfire is reduced.

The following cooking and heating appliances must not be used:

  • wood fires, including open campfires and fires in braziers, drums, other open containers,
  • QPWS supplied fire-rings and barbeques, and
  • ash producing fuels, heat beads, Oz-pigs and similar appliances.

Gas barbecues with a hooded lid can be used if done so safely, in an appropriate area away from vegetation and only for the purposes of cooking.

Visitors must comply with this fire ban and any directions given by rangers—penalties may apply for non-compliance.

Notify QPWS of any breaches in QPWS protected areas by calling 13 QGOV (13 74 68).
