This alert applies to the following parks:

As a result of high fire danger conditions typically experienced on K’gari over the warmer months causing an unacceptable risk to the safety of walkers in remote areas, a seasonal restriction on forward bookings for the K’gari (Fraser Island) Great Walk camp areas is implemented yearly from 1 November to 28 February.

Restrictions on forward bookings reduces impacts of visitors if the walk is closed at short notice.

During the time when the walk and camp areas may be closed, rangers will regularly assess the fire danger conditions and open the walk (or sections of the walk) and associated camp areas whenever conditions allow.

For an updated status of the K’gari (Fraser island) Great Walk, check the K’gari (Fraser Island) conditions report (updated regularly).
