Gas fires are permitted from 1 April to 30 November. Fireplaces should be cleared of all flammable material for a distance of 4 metres. Someone must be present at all times and ensure that the fire is fully extinguished before leaving. Fines will be imposed if this advice is disregarded.

  1. Should be recorded as “Open” in 2014, no current forest operations, shelter/toilets etc visible from Trail, why not say its open? Forest SA say its for group camping, so perhaps they can now confirm its available for Heysen Hikers as well. There is a shortage of campsites near Adelaide and this one needs to be re opened.
