Fire Danger - info and action plans

The Fire Danger Season for the Mt Lofty Ranges generally falls over the period commencing in November and concluding in May of each year, during which time Woodhouse has a TOTAL FIRE BAN. These dates change each year, please check the CFS website for further information. Total Fire Ban days may fall outside the fire season and the fire response plan applies on these days. 

Our number one priority is the safety of our guests. While Woodhouse has multiple open areas free from heavy fuel loads, due to the enthusiasm and diligence of our staff, further care is taken to prepare the site and staff prior to and throughout each Fire Danger Season. 

These extracts from the Bushfire Action Plan (BAP) provide information on matters likely to be of most concern when planning a Camp at Woodhouse during the fire danger period. Camp organisers can obtain copies of the full plan from Woodhouse if required.


During the Fire Danger Season, it is our policy that

  • All fires, smoking and hot works are strictly prohibited. 
  • Gas BBQs may be used in undercover Basecamps only.
