For the safety of all guests, safety requirements must be met - please refer to the printed Guest Information brochure provided at check in and/or below:
- The fire must be in a purpose built pit or drum and must be confined to this area.
- Consider not having a campfire in high winds.
- There must be a 4 metre cleared space around and above the fire. Tents, buildings or gas bottles must be at least 10 meters away.
- A responsible adult must be in attendance at all times with water on hand. (A large bucket filled with water is the minimum requirement.)
- Whilst near the fire, campers must wear enclosed shoes that will protect their feet from the fire and coals.
- Children must be briefed on how to be safe around the fire i.e.; no running or pushing, no fire sticks, keep a safe distance.
- Extinguish your fire completely when not in attendance.
