Smoke from planned burn -



The Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) will conduct planned burn operations within Magnetic Island National Park (in the hills northwest of Nelly Bay), from the 10th of May 2023, 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 vicinity of 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.


Smoke can decrease visibility on the roads, so it is important that motorists drive safely to the conditions.


For more information, please call the Magnetic Island office on 47 785 378.
