Residents given heads up on Springbrook burn

RESIDENTS have been advised of a planned Hazard Reduction burn which is scheduled to take place within the Numinbah area on Tuesday.

The Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) will conduct the burn from 10:00am, as part of the annual hazard reduction/conservation management program for parks and forests.

As a result, smoke may be seen in the Numinbah Valley, Springbrook, Advancetown and Beechmont areas.

The aim of this low-intensity burn is 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.
