Planned burn for Burrum Coast National Park

THE Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) will conduct a planned burn within the Woodgate Section of the Burrum Coast National Park starting today for the rest of the week, as part of the annual hazard reduction/conservation management program for parks and forests.

As a result, smoke may be seen within the Woodgate Beach township and adjacent to Acacia Street and Walkers Point Road. Motorists are asked to drive cautiously through smoke and to watch for firefighters.

The aim of this burn is to reduce the volume of forest fuels and to create a mosaic pattern of burnt and unburnt areas within the park.

This will help reduce the intensity of any subsequent wildfires and provide favourable conditions for natural forest regeneration.

For more information, please call the Woodgate office of the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service on 4126 8810.
