are gas cookers allowed?

Yes, personal gas cookers are allowed.

Your equipment may be inspected by Camp Site Staff to ensure it is in good working order or to assess any concerns regarding the age, type or use of your equipment.

It is a condition of using any gas cookers at the Camp Site that you comply with the Guidelines for the Safe Use of Camping Gas Cookers:

  • Please have your cooking equipment serviced before bringing it to the Camp Site.
  • Never light a gas cooker inside your tent or in any other enclosed area.
  • Always take note of the colour of the flame: it should be burning blue. If it’s burning with an orange or yellow flame or is creating sooty stains on your stove you may have a problem with your stove so PLEASE DO NOT USE IT.
  • Do not store spare gas canisters inside your tent, mobile home or caravan.
  • If you smell gas or think you have a leak, turn the stove off, evacuate the area and get help from a Camp Site Staff.
  • Never use a naked flame to search for a leak.
  • Empty canisters and aerosols may not be completely empty. When you’ve removed it from your stove, store it upright outside your tent for a while to allow any gas that may remain to evaporate.
  • Never attempt to refill a gas canister.

You will not be permitted to enter the Camp Site without one of these bar-coded passes under any circumstances.

can I move my vehicle to come and go from the Camp Site or drive around the Camp Site?

Absolutely no vehicles brought into the Camp Site (including the Overflow Carpark) are permitted to leave the Camp Site (or Overflow Carpark) under any circumstances until the Approved Departure Time.

what is the Inn?

The Inn is where the tent (and some extras, if you choose that option) are supplied, setup and packed down for you.  So you don’t have to bring your own tent.  Patrons of The Inn will have a designated area and will only be able to camp with friends who have purchased a site in The Inn area.  No general camping patrons will be allowed in The Inn area.
