Total Fire Bans - Can I Ride?

07-Feb-2015

We've had numerous questions about this.  From the Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES):

During a Total Fire Ban you cannot use a vehicle in bush or a paddock, unless it is for agricultural purposes.

You can only use a vehicle on a road, track or in an area that has been sufficiently cleared of flammable material.

Our interpretation of this is that single-track or twin-track (eg 4WD tracks) would not constitute a track that has been sufficiently cleared of flammable material, and this would rule out most  of the trail riding areas.

Adventure riding on gravel roads is OK.

As a precaution, RTRA will advise the closure of all Off-Road Vehicle Areas except Lancelin on Total Fire Ban Days.
