MOTORISTS heading to Rainbow Beach or Tin Can Bay have been warned about smoke from a bushfire that has been burning for almost a week.

Six Queensland Fire and Rescue Service crews continue to monitor the large bushfire burning in an inaccessible area at Tin Can Bay on Wednesday, the Department of Community Safety says. 

The fire, which is moving in a south-westerly direction, has been burning since Friday, January 4.

A fixed-wing aircraft is being used to conduct air reconnaissance.

A large amount of smoke is visible in the Tin Can Bay, Rainbow Beach and Gympie areas and motorists are urged to exercise caution and drive to conditions.

People with respiratory conditions are advised to stay indoors, keep windows closed and also keep their medication close by.

There is currently no threat to property.
