Open fires are prohibited anywhere on the island during declared Fire Danger Periods. Open fires at other times are legally permitted but not encouraged due to the highly combustible nature of the local vegetation. It is strongly recommended that campers use portable cooking stoves.

And don't forget to bring insect repellant and mozzie nets!
