Hi,
over heard some talk the other day that as of 2013 fires aren't allowed in Simpson, even taking your own wood in is an offence. Anyone confirm this? Has the Gastapo finally taken over Oz?
cheers

The Witjira Co-management Board have approved that fire wood collection will not be permitted on Witjira in 2012, but wood fires will still be allowed. In 2013, both wood fire collection and wood fires will not be permitted. This does not apply to the Simpson Desert reserves in South Australia
