Campfires

General advice about fire restrictions

Restrictions apply to having campfires in Victoria. These restrictions are important to reduce the chance of a bushfire that could result in loss of life and property. They are actively enforced.

If you would like to know how to safely light and maintain your campfire, please take a look at this video produced by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning.
