Planned burns scheduled – Tuesday 4 to Friday 7 August 2020


Redland City Council – in consultation with the Quandamooka Yoollooburrabee Aboriginal Corporation (QYAC) Rangers, QFES and QRFS – will undertake multiple hazard reduction burns on North Stradbroke Island this week (dependent on ongoing weather conditions).

The burns are planned for Tramican Street and George Nothling Drive Conservation Areas at Point Lookout. See the areas highlighted in yellow on the map.

Site preparations have included clearing around significant logs and habitat trees.

It is appreciated that these burns may cause some inconvenience, however all attempts will be
made to limit any smoke hazards from the work.

The planned burns are necessary to reduce the volume of forest litter fuel, which will assist with hazard reduction. Planned burns also provide conditions essential for native bushland regeneration.
