Unless you camping in the middle of no where (ie deep in the bush) Camp fires are not always a given when travelling. If camping in a camping ground call ahead if possiable. Heres a couple we recently found. Cathedrals, Dundabra & waddy point on Fraser (only in designated Fire Rings) Neurum Creek, Lake Moogerah, Queen Mary Falls Park all have a fire ring on every site. You can even buy the wood too. Just remember in the summer months fire bans can be in place.
