Smoke from West Point Road 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 West

Point Road, just south of West Point on Tuesday the 21st of May 2024.

As a result, smoke may be seen in the vicinity of West Point. Smoke can decrease visibility on the

roads, so it is important that motorists drive safely to the conditions and follow signage and

directions from rangers.

The aim of this burn is to reduce the volume of 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.
