  1. I’m planning a 30km hike with scouts for the near future. Just need to clarify, is the water drinkable at this campsite or does it need to be treated first?
    Also, am i able to use a trangia stove in the campsite? I know that there are some restrictions regarding fires so it’s probably best that i follow them.
    Thanks 🙂

    • Hi Elise, water in all the tanks along the trail is drinkable. As with all such water tanks, we recommend as best practice that the water be treated by yourself prior to consumption.

      There are no restrictions on the use of trangia stoves during the non-fire danger season. During the fire danger season, from December to April, trangia stoves aren’t permitted on fire ban days – however much of the Heysen Trail is closed during this time anyway.
