Queensland Fire and Emergency Service (QFES), Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) and the Quandamooka Yoolooburrabee Aboriginal Corporation (QYAC) will be assisting neighbours to conduct planned burning on North Stradbroke Island from Monday 1st August to Wednesday 10th August 2022, weather permitting.

The proposed area is Flinders Swamp between Adder Rock and Flinders Township. This burn is being undertaken as part of the annual hazard reduction to maintain forest health and protect life and property in the event of a wildfire

Flinders Beach will be closed to the public east of the Flinders Township beach access to Adder Rock access for the duration of the burn.

As a result, smoke may be seen in the vicinity of the Amity Point, Point Lookout, Dunwich, Main and Flinders beaches and Redland City Council areas. Persons with respiratory or other health problems should seek medical advice on mitigating the effects of smoke inhalation.

For your safety, please observe all signage, barriers and directions from rangers, and do not enter closed areas.
