This alert applies to the following park:

Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) will conduct a prescribed burn between 27 July and 31 August 2022 as part of the annual hazard reduction/conservation management program for parks and forests. These burns are being undertaken to help protect life and property in the event of a wildfire.

Smoke may be seen in the vicinity of Eurong including from beach camping zone 1 (Govi, Wongai) and zone 2 (One Tree Rocks, Cornwells and Gabala).

During the prescribed burn a section of the Great Walk from Eurong Township to Central Station will be closed to the public, this includes Markwells feeder track. There is no alternative route. 

Persons with respiratory or other health problems should seek medical advice on mitigating the effects of smoke inhalation.  Smoke can decrease visibility on the roads, so it is important that motorists drive safely to the conditions.

Please observe and adhere to all signage, barriers and directions from rangers and contractors, and do not enter closed areas or exclusion zones.
