Smoke from Eubenangee Swamp National Park


The Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service & Partnerships (QPWS&P) will conduct a series of planned burns within the Eubenangee Swamp National Park from Tuesday, October 05, 2021, until October 08, 2021, as part of the annual hazard reduction/conservation management program for parks.


As a result, smoke may be seen in the Eubenangee area.


The aim of this burn is to reduce the volume of forest/grass 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 the natural regeneration of endangered wetland communities within Eubenangee Swamp.


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