This alert applies to the following park:
The Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) and the Quandamooka Yoolooburrabee Aboriginal Corporation (QYAC) will be conducting planned burns from June to September 2021 in the Gheebulum Coonungai (Moreton Island) National Park and Moreton Island Recreation Area.
These burns are part of the annual hazard reduction, cultural heritage and conservation management program for QPWS and QYAC. They will assist in maintaining forest health and to help protect life and property in the event of a wildfire.
As a result, smoke may be seen in the vicinity of the Moreton Bay and Redland City Council areas. Persons with respiratory or other health problems should seek medical advice on mitigating the effects of smoke inhalation.
Smoke can decrease visibility across the water, so it is important that boaties use caution when travelling around these areas when burns are being undertaken.
Observe all signage, barriers and directions from rangers, and do not enter closed areas.
In an emergency situation, call 000.
