Smoke from Kelly St planned burn

Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) will conduct planned burn operations within Magnetic Island National Park as part of the annual hazard reduction and conservation management program for parks and forests. Weather permitting, it will be conducted from the end of Kelly Street in Nelly Bay from the 7th of May to the 9th of May 2024.

As a result, smoke may be seen in the vicinity of area. Smoke can decrease visibility on the roads, so it is important that motorists drive safely to the conditions.

The aim of this burn is to reduce the volume of forest fuels and to create a mosaic pattern of burnt and unburnt areas.

This will help reduce the intensity of any subsequent wildfires and provide favourable conditions for natural forest regeneration.

For more information, please call the Magnetic Island office on (07) 4778 5378.
