Current fire ban: Paluma Range National Park

Applies until 20 September 2019.

This alert applies to the following parks:

A local fire ban prohibiting the lighting of fires in the open has been declared by the Queensland Fire and Emergency Services to cover the period from 0001hrs on Thursday 12 September 2019 to 2359hrs on Friday 20 September 2019, due to the current high fire danger conditions and weather forecasts issued by the Bureau of Meteorology.

This ban includes all parts of the local government areas listed on the Queensland Fire and Emergency Services website which includes the Paluma Range National Park.

When a fire ban is in place, the lighting of fires in the declared fire ban area is prohibited (including wood-fuelled barbecues and stoves).

Gas and electric barbecues, including gas and spirit stoves, are permitted to be used during QPWS-imposed fire prohibitions and QFRS-imposed fire bans, provided:

  • they do not have the potential to generate airborne embers or possibly ignite nearby ground fuels
  • are not left unattended
  • are suitably contained.

Visitors must comply with this fire ban and any directions given by rangers—penalties may apply for non-compliance.

For more information please see Queensland Fire and Emergency Services.
