Smoke from planned burn - Curtis Island National Park - Monday 23 to Friday 27 March 2020

Applies until 27 March 2020.

This alert may no longer be current. Please check the parks listed below for new or updated advice.

This alert applies to the following parks:

The Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) will conduct a planned burn within the Curtis Island Environmental Management Precinct near Gladstone from Monday 23 to Friday 27 March 2020, weather permitting; as part of the annual hazard reduction/conservation management program for parks and forests. As a result, smoke may be seen in the Gladstone and surrounding areas. The aim of this burn is to reduce the volume of forest fuels and to create a mosaic pattern of burnt and unburnt areas. This will help reduce the intensity of any subsequent wildfires, and provide favourable conditions for natural forest regeneration. Smoke can decrease visibility on the roads, so it is important that motorists drive safely to the conditions. For more information, please call Gladstone office of QPWS on 07 4971 6500.
