Prescribed burn at Lincoln National Park

Date posted: 24 May 2024

A prescribed burn is planned at Lincoln National Park, on the Eyre Peninsula, on Saturday 25 May 2024, weather conditions permitting.

  • The prescribed burn will start at 10am and is likely to be completed by 9pm the same day.
  • The area to be burnt is 15 hectares near Taylors Landing Road within the park.
  • This is a landscape protection burn to reduce the likelihood of the whole park burning in a single bushfire event.
  • Taylors Landing Campground and the Investigator Trail between Donington Road and Taylors Landing will be closed throughout the burn.
  • Speed restrictions will be in place along Taylors Landing Road, which may be closed for periods during the operation.
  • Smoke will affect Taylors Landing Road during the burn.
  • National Parks and Wildlife Service crews will remain on site until safe.

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.
