Prescribed burn in Kulliparu Conservation Park

Date posted: 16 Apr. 2020

A prescribed burn is planned in Kulliparu Conservation Park on Thursday 12 March weather conditions permitting.

  • The prescribed burn will start at 3.30pm on Thursday 12 March 2020 and should be complete by 9pm that day.
  • The burn will impact 700 hectares of land in the north-west corner of the Conservation Park to the east of Port Kenny.
  • This burn aims to create a fuel reduced landscape buffer within the park and reduce the risk of fire moving through the landscape.

The burn will be carried out by the National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) and the local CFS brigade has been invited to attend. 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.
