Smoke Advice Hull River National Park


The Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) will conduct planned burn operations at Tam O’Shanter Point within Hull River National Park during October 2021, as part of the annual hazard reduction/conservation management program for parks and forests.

As a result, smoke may be seen in the Mission Beach and Hull River area. 


Smoke can decrease visibility on the roads, so it is important that motorists drive safely to the conditions.

Persons with respiratory or other health problems should seek medical advice on mitigating the effects of smoke inhalation and should close windows and doors. Keep medications close by if suffering from a respiratory illness. 

The aim of this burn is to reduce the volume of forest fuels and to create a mosaic pattern of burnt and unburnt areas.

This will help reduce the intensity of any subsequent wildfires and provide favourable conditions for natural forest regeneration.

Please observe directions from Rangers and do not enter closed areas.
