Backburning on Fraser Island

Backburning

The Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service will conduct a planned burn on Fraser Island beginning tomorrow until August 31.

As a result, smoke may be seen in the Happy Valley, Poyungan Valley and Yidney Rocks areas.

The burn 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.
