Update from Queensland NPWS Re Amamoor State Forest
For Amamoor Creek Camping Area, Cedar Grove Camping Area and Amama Day Use Area
‘Open fires must not be lit anywhere in the above mentioned protected areas.
Open fires are defined as: wood fires that are not fully self-contained, including open campfires, braziers, drums, other open containers, and QPWS supplied fire-rings and barbeques.
The fire prohibition is in place due to a Rural Fire Service Queensland (RFSQ) imposed fire ban. It will remain in place until the risk of wildfire moderates.
Permitted cooking and heating appliances include fuel stoves using manufactured fuels (e.g. LPG, hexamine fuel blocks, briquettes or heat beads): • Off the ground (recommended minimum height 200mm) and should not result in ash or coal deposit on the ground. • Must be a fully self-contained unit (e.g. ‘Ozpig’ heating appliance). • Must be well away from vegetation.
Visitors must comply with fire prohibition guidelines and directions of QPWS rangers—penalties may apply ‘
