I think they brought the fire rule in last year due to drought etc, they may let you have fires in winter but cant quite remember, best to ring and check.

You might be allowed fires in eurimbula nat park, there are acouple of beach type areas but mangroves aswell, deepwater would be far better for beach camping. The next best closest beach camping area is palm beach south of bundy and part of/adjoining Kinkuna National Park. South of that agian is burrum coast National park near woodgate.

hope this helps

I think you can still have fires at Kinkuna beach, but I know for sure that they are not allowed at Burrum Point campground (Woodgate).

My brother and I are thinking of heading up to Burrum Point in Sep/Oct, to do a bit of flats fishing. Any Idea what the mozzie situation is like at that time of year?? Was up there last april, and they were so thick, you could breath em' in, but it was still one of the best camping trips i've done.

The Burrum Coast is a great place to camp, so quiet, and the climate is just fantastic in spring. Just hope the fishings good come October!!

Not sure on the mossies mate, bit like luck of the draw, it is fairly windy hear in september/october which should keep them at bay, they generally get bad after some rains in novemeber late october, shouldnt worry you too much

Thanks for that, mate. Yeah, thats what I thought, they were really bad after the rains last year, so hopefully after a dry spell, we should be right.

Thanks again.
