Was there a while back, fires are fine, so long as its not a Total Fire Ban period obviously.
Wood may be a bit scant, bring a bit with you.

Seems everybody likes to stop at the gorge, but it ain't much fun when the wind gets going.
Been anywhere interesting lately John P.

Hi David

As the reply above, the answer is yes provided that it is not a fire ban day. I was only speaking to a local last week that spend the weekend over there and like all spots that are popular, there is no wood and they took their own wood with them.

While you are over there, the Burra Mine Passport Tour is a great drive also.


Cheers

+1 on the Burra passport key tour! :D Excellent! We've done it several times with visitors & never get tired of it. You can get the key from the Burra tourist info (easy to find)

We were there in July and found wood very scarce. Even trying to buy wood in Burra was very hard. We collected pine cones from a few trees we found on our travels
Lovely spot to stay.

Frequent rest stop for us on way home from our northern travels - take in every bit of wood you need - nary a twig to be found there.
