Hazard reduction burn off for Bribie region

There will be planned burn-offs in Bribie Island National Park this week, according to Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service

The burns will be conducted until Friday - weather permitting.

These operations form part of the hazard reduction and conservation management program for Queensland’s parks and forests.

Smoke may be seen on Bribie Island, in surrounding residential areas, northern Moreton Bay area and the Pumicestone Passage.

Smoke can decrease visibility on the roads so it is important that motorists drive safely to the conditions.

There are no park closures associated with these planned burns.

Observe all signage, barriers and directions from rangers, and do not enter prohibited areas.
