Planned burns will cause smoke on Fraser Island

FRASER Island campers should expect to see smoke near K'gari campground from Friday until the end of August due to planned burns.

The Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service will conduct the burns as part of an annual program to reduce hazards in the island's parks and forests.

"This will help reduce the intensity of any subsequent wildfires and provide favourable conditions for natural forest regeneration," a QPWS spokesperson said.
