  • The prescribed burn will start at 11am and is likely to be completed by 4pm the same day.
  • The area to be burnt is 3 hectares on private land between Wooly Butt Road and Coat Road.
  • This is part of a series of planned burns on private land aiming to reduce the risk of bushfire affecting the community of Ironbank.

NPWSSA 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.
