Prescribed burn in Lincoln National Park (Eyre Peninsula)

Date posted: 05 Apr. 2023

A prescribed burn is planned at Lincoln National Park on the Eyre Peninsula on Wednesday, 5 April, weather conditions permitting.

  • The prescribed burn will start at 1:30pm on Wednesday 5 April and is likely to be completed by 8:00pm.
  • The area to be burnt is 139 hectares of land within the park on the southern end of Taylors Landing Road, west of the Taylors Landing campground.
  • This is a landscape protection burn to reduce the likelihood of the whole park burning in a single bushfire event and provide protection for the Taylors Landing campground area.
  • Taylors Landing Road and campground will be closed for the duration of the burn, including access to the boat ramp. The Investigator Walking Trail will be closed from Pillie Lake through to Taylors Landing Road for the duration of the burn.
  • Smoke is expected drift towards the Memory Cove area.

NPWSSA conducts a statewide program of prescribed burns to reduce the spread and intensity of bushfires, protect communities and enhances 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.
