Prescribed burn at Naracoorte North Nature Park

Date posted: 22 Mar. 2024

A prescribed burn is planned at Naracoorte North Nature Park on Monday 25 March 2024, weather conditions permitting.

  • The prescribed burn will start at 1.30pm and is likely to be completed by 7.30pm Monday 25 March.
  • The area to be burnt is 21.9 hectares in part of the Naracoorte North Nature Park on Naracoorte Lucindale Council land.
  • The Nature Park is located on the north side of the Naracoorte township, and is directly adjacent to the Naracoorte Primary School, Naracoorte and District Sports Centre and Naracoorte Swimming Lake.
  • This is a landscape protection burn to reduce the likelihood of the whole parklands burning in a single bushfire event, and to reduce impact of woody weeds.
  • Walking paths will be closed in this area until signage is taken down.
  • Naracoorte-Padthaway Road, also known as Riddoch Highway, Macmillan Road and the Naracoorte Golf Club may be impacted by smoke.
  • National Parks and Wildlife Service crews will remain on site until safe.

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