You acknowledge that there will be third parties present in the park during your stay and that we are not responsible for the acts or behaviour of those parties.  It is your responsibility to ensure the personal safety, welfare and protection of all minors in your party at all times during their stay at the park.

Smoking or vaping is not permitted in or around any park facilities (including indoor spaces, shelters and areas in or around activities). If we consider that you or your party has smoked in an accommodation venue, you will incur a $500 cleaning fee.

You and your party must respect the comfort of others staying in park at all times. Any unruly behaviour, excessive noise, drunkenness, bad and/or offensive language will not be tolerated and may result in you and your party being evicted from the park without refund. Quiet time in the park is after 10pm every day, and we may require you to refrain from any behaviour we consider may be disruptive to other guests of the park and issue a $500 fine.

All recreational activities are undertaken solely at the risk of the participant. You are responsible for supervising and ensuring the safety of any minors in your party undertaking recreational activities.

If Scouts SA provide safety equipment in relation to undertaking recreational activities at the park you and your party must use that safety equipment when undertaking the recreational activity.

Outside of bushfire danger season (16 April- 1 November), MOST DEFINITELY! We have three purpose-built campfire circles available for the shared use and enjoyment of our guests.

For the safety of all guests, safety requirements must be met:

  • Consider not having a campfire in high winds.
  • There must be a 4 metre cleared space around and above the fire. Tents, buildings or gas bottles must be at least 10 meters away.
  • A responsible adult must be in attendance at all times with water on hand. (A large bucket filled with water is the minimum requirement.)
  • Whilst near the fire, campers must wear enclosed shoes that will protect their feet from the fire and coals.
  • Children must be briefed on how to be safe around the fire i.e.; no running or pushing, no fire sticks, keep a safe distance.
  • Extinguish your fire completely when not in attendance.
