This alert applies to the following park:

The Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) will conduct a planned burn in Samford Conservation Park, Friday 23 July 2021 to Thursday 29 July 2021 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 Camp Mountain, Bunya, Arana Hills, Ferny Grove and Upper Kedron 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.

Please monitor park alerts on the department's website for updated information.

Please observe all signage, barriers and directions from rangers and do not enter closed areas.
