Prescribed burn at Lincoln National Park

Date posted: 27 May 2024

A prescribed burn is planned at Lincoln National Park on the Eyre Peninsula this Tuesday and Wednesday, weather conditions permitting.

  • This prescribed burn is a continuation of the burn which National Parks and Wildlife Service began near Taylors Landing Road on Saturday 25 May.
  • The burn is likely to be completed by 9pm Wednesday 29 May.
  • The area to be burnt is 100 hectares 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 Road will be closed between Tuesday 28 May-Thursday 30 May, and the Investigator Trail will be closed in the area during the operations.
  • Smoke will be visible for several days following the burn.
  • NPWS 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.
