errr how much are we talking about ? you can buy it from petrol stations.

you probably know you can't collect it from state forests and national parks.

private property is usually a good place.

In NSW you can grab it from SF's but u have to get a permit (token amount, maybe $20 i think) so long as its for private use :? Free if your actually camping in there and using it for a campfire

Do you guys have council cleanups in QLD? I usually grab any pallets I see, their easy to break up, transport, and burn.
Failing that anywhere thats rural/semi-rural will have stuff on the side of the road

about half way down my driveway theres normally between 1 and 6 tonnes of redgum and yellow box :*** Just dont tell dad

The yellow box burns the best but the redgum is easier to light. I used to split firewood when i was younger (and much fitter) for the local general store. It wasnt that uncommon for the two of us to split over 80tonnes in a day!!! (these days moving one wheel barrow is enough to nearly kill me!)

Speaking of firewood. Has anyone tried those cheap chainsaws on eBay.

not sure about the chainsaws, friends that have chainsaws seem to be proud to own a nice quality one and bag out cheaper ones. not sure why.

When we go to Inskip camping, we get firewood from the bait shop or from the truck that drives around. You get a good amount in a big bag for $10. only problem is sometimes it's a bit green and doesn't burn very well.

They go pretty cheap and come with heaps of extras. I wouldn't use it a great deal either but I sure could have done with one down at Kulkyne. I have a good axe but the body isn't as good as it used to be. ::()

You can get a talon from Bunnings for around the $250 mark.
I got an 18" one for a tad over $300 6 months ago and hasn't missed a beat, not that I use it that much. Just an alternative, I've found talon stuff to have a pretty good reputation for whats generally a cheaper brand

We just go down the back and grab some fire wood if we need it , but normally we have plenty cut as we have the campfire going most weekends , There's nothing like getting home on a Friday arvo lighting the fire ,having a shower , grabing a beer and cooking a bbq. If your coming out this way call in and grab some . As for chainsaws I have had a stihl chainsaw for 25 years and used it a lot over the years . If I had to buy another I'd buy another Stihl.

Check your local free newspaper....the for sale section has lots advertised.....lots of choice around winter ......I think aimed at home fireplaces......usually pretty cheap..
