Collecting firewood in the south-west

You do not need a permit ('Authority') to collect firewood in the south-west. However, collecting firewood is only permitted in designated areas.

If the designated firewood collection area falls within a Disease Risk Area (DRA) an approval to enter DRA will be required. A DRA will be identified on your firewood collection area map. Your local DBCA office will be able to issue approval to enter a DRA. This approval includes ‘conditions of entry’ which must be followed.
