Tables are booked from 8am to 5.30pm throughout the year. You are welcome to stay beyond this time in the Summer when the Park stays open until 8.30pm. Not all tables are bookable, there are a number of tables available for casual use each day. To protect the amenity of the Park it is recommended that more than one table is booked for groups larger than 25.
To reserve your preferred table, simply fill out the booking form and email it to us. Please note that a picnic table booking is non-transferable and non-refundable. When leaving picnic areas please place your rubbish in the garbage and recycling bins located in the carparks or take it home with you.
Firewood, when available, is provided for use in the wood-fired barbecues. Rangers make every effort to gather firewood but supply cannot be guaranteed. Visitors are asked to not bring charcoal heat beads into the park. Please note that on TOTAL FIRE BAN days, the use of fire (including wood and/or portable gas) barbecues is prohibited and only the electric barbecues in Section 1 can be used.
Dogs are not permitted in the picnic areas, the internal road, carparks, or the water at any time.
