http://www.cfa.vic.gov.au/restrictions/documents/can_i_cant_i/can_i_english.pdf updated version with the following banner heading - "Victoria is one of the most bushfire-prone regions in the world so we all need to be careful with fire, and things that can start fires, during the warmer months. This brochure details what you can and can't do during declared Fire Danger Periods and on days of Total Fire Ban. Fires in the open air are legally restricted when a Fire Danger Period is declared in a municipality by CFA. These restrictions are in place until 1 May unless revoked earlier. Department of Sustainability and Environment (DSE) fire restrictions are in force all year in State forests, National, State and Regional parks. Contact local DSE and Parks Victoria offices for advice on campfire restrictions. Total Fire Bans are declared by CFA on days when fires are likely to spread rapidly and be difficult to control."
