Thread: Collecting wood and rocks in QLD

    Default Collecting wood and rocks in QLD

    I live close to a few nature reserves and creeks here in Brisbane. From googling, I know I can't collect firewood from reserves but since I'm not going to burn them, I'm wondering about the legality of collecting wood and rocks in reserves and creeks. Also with regards to creek in suburbs, are they too polluted to collect from? Thanks.

    I live in Brisbane too but my parents have 60 acres with a few streams on their property an hour and a half away from here. So if you wanna go on a field trip to their place let me know. Don't forget it's best to bake anything you take from outside but becareful with rocks I've heard if you put a rock that's absorbed water in a fire it can crack.

    Hahaha yeah that's what my brother has told me has happened a few times when kids are putting stuff in the fire. (he teaches primitive skills so he has quite a bit of fire making and stone tools)

    always more likely with rocks that have lots of bubbles in them.......

    Apparently you cannot even use wood from a private property even if it is your property in QLD, but you can burn it. Go figure. I have never gotten to the bottom of that one.
