This alert applies to the following parks:

Until further notice, the lighting of all types of fires is prohibited. This fire prohibition is in place due to current fire danger conditions and will remain in place until the risk of wildfire is reduced.

Fires must not be lit anywhere in:

  • Bribie Island National Park and Recreation Area
  • Moreton Island National Park and Recreation Area
  • Minjerribah Recreation Area
  • Naree Budjong Djara National Park

The following cooking and heating appliances must not be used:

  • wood fires, including open campfires and fires in braziers, drums, other open containers,
  • QPWS supplied fire-rings and barbeques, and
  • ash producing fuels, heat beads, Oz-pigs and similar appliances.

Gas barbecues with a hooded lid can be used if done so safely, in an appropriate area away from vegetation and only for the purposes of cooking.

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