Date posted: 11 May 2021

A prescribed burn is planned for adjacent Taylors Landing Road and Investigator trail, Lincoln National Park, south of Port Lincoln, on Eyre Peninsula on Wednesday 12 May 2021, weather conditions permitting.

  • The prescribed burn will start at 9:45 am and should be complete by 6:00 pm.
  • It will affect about 2.0 hectares within the park.
  • The objective of the burn is to undertake edge burning in preparation for future operations.
  • Investigator Trail will have a detour in place.
  • Taylor Landing Road and camping area will remain open.
  • Investigator Trail may be impacted by smoke.

The burn will be carried out by NPWS. A crew will remain on site until it is safe to leave.

NPWS conducts a statewide program of prescribed burns to reduce the spread and intensity of bushfires, protect communities and enhance biodiversity. Prescribed burning is just one tool used to reduce fuel loads across strategic areas of public and private land.

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