We were camped at Buandik for 5 days over the last weekend and witnessed what could only be described as "poor form" from a large-ish group of climbers.

It was a bit cold, so it wasn't unreasonable to light a fire. However they climbed over the fence in to the revegetation zone and collected firewood from there.

when my girlfriend questioned one of them she said dismissively "it's OK because we come here every weekend" and that the fences were "for the kangaroos"...

how hard is it to drive 5 min to the pine plantation and get your firewood there?

Yes, that make's perfect sense. If you come there every weekend, you have the right to do as you please As you said, Bad form!

Did you take any details? Car rego, description of people etc?
Pass it on to Parks Vic so they can be aware of it.
Fences are there to keep nuf nufs like that out, not roos.
If they asre there every weekend they should be bringing their own wood.
Obviously sports climbers or boulderers.

Next time, follow Tony Jaa's example;

He's not impressed by knobs doing knob things and shows them what happens when they break the rules. I particularly like it when he throws the boulderer off the landing into the little shed thingy...

I imagine it would be hard to keep the gulf stream fenced in that long ww&s!

It pisses me off too. It happens way to regularly at Araps too. Just driving 5 mins down the road doesn't make collecting wood in the park any more legal....

I am surprised that some enterprising (climber?) has not already started a 'buy your firewood here' enterprise at Araps (with wood collected from elsewhere), particularly for the popular periods if the weather is amenable for fires to be lit.
