Not all of this is a warning tip.
National Parks are great to camp in, we do it often and thoroughly enjoy ourselves.
As with most, you purchase entry and camping permits from a self-registration station when you first enter the park. These are located adjacent to the Innes National Park Visitor Centre and Gym Beach Campground.
At this park, the difficulty is putting the pegs into the ground [should I say limstone rock] Take something strong with you to hammer these into the ground. Another problem is the wind, coming straight from the southern ocean. It can be very windy and cold, so choose a sheltered spot if you can.
Fires do happen, so be prepared, the park may be closed on days of extreme fire danger.
All wood fires or solid fuel fires are prohibited during the Fire Danger Season from 1 November to 30 April. Fires are permitted outside these dates in designated fireplaces only. Gas fires are permitted other than on days of Total Fire Ban.
In case of an emergency, dial 000.
Contact the Regional Duty Officer on 0417 883 678 for urgent issues only
