Extra Requirements for Visitors During Bushfire Season

During the bushfire season between November and the end of April bring a long-sleeved cotton shirt with high collar and long, heavy cotton trousers (jeans are fine) and sturdy leather shoes with fire-proof soles.
Short term overnight lay guests may be asked to leave during periods of Extreme Fire Danger. It would therefore be very helpful for non-local guests to have alternative accommodation during the fire season.
There are instructions in all accommodation rooms and kutis regarding daily and emergency procedures for Bushfire Safety and Emergency Survival. Please read and follow all these instructions.
Please also read the Fire Information for Visitors on this website.

No incense or candles are to be lit anywhere on Monastery property during Fire Season.
No Smoking at any time.
