  • The prescribed burn will start at 11am on Monday 30 September 2019 and should be complete by Midnight Tuesday 1 October.
  • It will affect about 250 hectares at the entrance to Lincoln National Park, 2km south of Tulka and 12km south of Port Lincoln.

  • The Lincoln National Park entrance road will remain open and speed restrictions will be in place. Sleaford - Tulka Track will be closed during operations.
  • Smoke may be visible for a few days following completion.

The burn will be carried out by the National Parks and Wildlife Service with local CFS crews on standby to assist. A crew will remain on site until it is safe to leave.

The objective of this burn is to reduce fuels in the area to prevent the spread of bushfire. It is part of a statewide program of prescribed burning planned to protect communities and assets at risk

Prescribed burns will only be carried out when it is deemed safe to do so and may be cancelled at short notice.
