Cyclone Gita

Kawau Island is moving from a Total Fire Ban to a Restricted Fire Season

·         This means any outside fire is by permit only

·         Gas BBQs are exempt

Open fire season starts 1.4.18 and runs till 30.9.18 with a fire permit only and permit conditions satisfied

This means any cooking device, fish smoker, hot tub, pizza oven, incinerator, open fire of any type, beach fire: any open outside fire needs a permit please

Safety is the focus: if it has no permit do not light it, the fines are massive and never mind the potential to burn our Island

Not sure? Contact me by email preferably please: 

I have written about 70 fire permits for Kawau Island so far just to give you an idea of the numbers of fires and potential for danger

Have a great weekend , all the best

Cheers Chris
