Geocache Description:

Victoria has some tremendouse vistas, but while admiring the native bush plants, animals and geological formations, keep an eye out for smoke and fire, particularly over the summer.

Victoria is one of the most fire-prone areas in the world and heavily vegetated locations are, by there very nature, high fire risk areas.


This cache is in a high risk area so check the Fire Danger Rating and bushfire activity before going in search of this one. The view is spectacular but access and egress could be a problem in a fire. Note: National Parks will be closed on CODE RED fire danger rated days.

If camping in the bush, be aware that restrictions apply to campfires and barbeques in Victoria. These restrictions reduce the chance of a bushfire that could result in loss of life and property. They are actively enforced. Fire restrictions for campfires and barbeques vary depending on the fire risk on a particular day or time of year, and whether the activity is on public or private land.

Campfires in National and State Parks must only be lit in permanent, constructed fire places. In other areas, a pit at least 30cm deep can be used. The fire must not be more than 1 square metre and the fuel must be the minimum size necessary for the purpose.

The area within 3 metres of the barbecue must clear of flammable material and at least 10 litres of water available for immediate use. An adult must be there at all times when the fire is alight and the fire completely extinguished before the adult leaves.

On Total Fire Ban days, only commercially constructed gas or electricity barbeques are permitted, and only for meal preparation. Campfires and fires for warmth or personal comfort are not permitted. Solid and liquid fuel barbeques and ovens are also not permitted.

Always use water to extinguish your campfire before your leave and if in doubt, do not light a fire.

Don't go outside the barriers and no need to disturb the vegetation.
