Smoke from Magnetic Island National Park


The Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service and Partnerships (QPWS&P) will conduct a planned

burn within the Searchlight Tower area between Arthur Bay and Florence Bay Monday 12 July

2021, weather permitting, as part of the annual hazard reduction/conservation management

program for parks and forests.

As a result, smoke may be seen in the Forts and Florence Bay area.

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.

Track from Arthur Bay to Florence Bay may be impacted by smoke and Rangers will advise

walkers on the day.

For more information, please call Magnetic Island office of QPWS&P on 4778 5378.
