  • The prescribed burn will start at 11.30am and is likely to be completed by 5pm on Monday 22 April.
  • The area to be burnt is 1.5 hectares on private property off Yundi Road, approximately 2km north of Mount Compass.

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.
