Fireplaces and barbecues are provided or visitors can use portable barbecues in open areas. Please bring your own wood. During total fire bans, no fires, barbecues or gas appliances are allowed.

All people fishing must be in possession of a current NSW Fisheries Fishing Licence.

There are restrictions on fishing in the park. Click here to download a pdf with the details.

Due to snags, cold deep water and poor water quality after rain, swimming in Lane Cove River is not advised.
