wood fires at Arapiles

Yep and they could have done stuff like split some long sections of timber and placed them over in the gums in the run-off channels that have developed to slow down and disperse fast flowing water when it rains hard so erosion is minimised. It does not really seem that Parks Victoria has any sort of coherent vision for Tuan Arapiles State Park ...

By coherent, what I meant was, "Does it make any sense?" And then of course there is the question of whether the plan is actually being implemented. ;-)

We are considering a trip to Arapiles in May 2014 (from Auckland). I for one would love to camp, but others in the group may be less keen, and this might swing the decision.

Does the fire ban still include May? Brrr.

If not, does anyone have any recommendations for somewhere to purchase firewood?

The weekend before last I noticed you can buy firewood at the BP (I think) on the road through Horsham to Natimuk - on the other side to the Safeway / Woolworths supermarket. $10 a bag? Or it could've been $7?

very expensive way to buy wood . box and red gum retail for $100 to $130 a tonne in the towns so very dear wood and a lot of the time it isn't very good

Well yes, but we aren't likely to haul a tonne out to the camp in an already fairly full rental car ;-)

Anyone - are the fire pits still banned in May?

No. Ban ends at end of March or April, can't remember which, but May is definitely OK.
Good for you planning to bring your wood. Too many people just ignore the fact that collection of firewood in the park is not allowed.

Don't buy in the servo (Shell I think) on the right in Stawell - ripped off there once, $15+ per bag I think.
