If you’re looking for fire pits, Australia has a lot to offer. After all, there is nothing more satisfying, on a cold winters evening, than sitting around a log fire and being warmed in its glow. Man has been building fires for thousands of years to provide protection, warmth, light and to cook food. Building fires are in our DNA, a connection we have to our past and one we will take into our futures.
My children love winter backyard fires. They will ask me every weekend if we can light our fire, as they check the cupboard to ensure marshmallows are fully stocked. As much as they get delighted by this treat, so do I.
I will never forget being taught how to make my first fire. Building a pyramid from kindling over a base of dry newspaper, lighting the paper and blowing gently to watch the kindling begin to glow. Slowly adding larger pieces of wood until the fire is roaring. Feeling almost disappointed that the work is done, no more action is required other than to sit, relaxing, regarding. Watching shapes appear in the flames, the wood becoming different scenes for the eye to discover, the changing colours, white-hot, a deep orange glow, the warmth enveloping and calming, the smell, so primal, so comforting.
I’ve been building fires for many years now. This sense of wonder, of pleasure, of peace, has never changed. When I build a fire for my family, the treat is mine. With many options for different fire pits, Australia has some great choices.
