Planned event: Melaleuca, Southwest National Park Fuel Reduction Burn
Applies from 6/7/2022

Weather permitting, we will be conducting a fuel reduction burn at Melaleuca, Southwest National Park on Wednesday 6 until Friday 8 July 2022, as part of the recovery program for the critically endangered Orange-bellied parrot.

The total area of the burns is approximately 110 hectares and is likely to take 2 to 3 days to complete. Smoke may persist some days afterwards.

During burning operations public access to this area will be restricted and the South Coast Walking Track will be temporarily closed between the Melaleuca airstrip and Half Woody Hill.

The public is asked to remain well out of the burn site while the burn is taking place. Please comply with directions from staff or any signs if you are in the area.

Further information is available by contacting 6165 4059.
