QPWS is planning burn-offs on Fraser Island next week
SMOKE may be seen in and around the Eurong and Dilli Village areas and Lake Boomanjin on Fraser Island next week as the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service conducts planned burns.
The burn-offs from June 4-9, which will go ahead weather permitting, are part of the annual hazard reduction/conservation management program for parks and forests.
QPWS said the aim of the burn was to reduce the volume of forest fuels and to create a mosaic pattern of burnt and unburnt areas within the park.
"This will help reduce the intensity of any subsequent wildfires and provide favourable conditions for natural forest regeneration," the service said.
