It’s official, all open fires including campfires are now banned through the region. Rising temperatures this week and lack of rain this month have forced the band to take effect.
Fines can reach $1,150 if you’re caught lighting something against the ban. You can however still use cooking stoves that use gas, propane or briquettes, or portable campfire apparatus as long as the flame is less than 15 centimetres high.
