Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) and Quandamooka Yoolooburrabee Aboriginal Corporation (QYAC) will be undertaking three separate planned burns on North Stradbroke Island/Minjerribah from Tuesday 13 April to Friday 16 April 2021.

They are conducting the burns at the following locations:

  • North of 2 Mile (5.3 ha) on Tuesday 13 April 2021
