Fuel reduction burn at Wineglass Bay Lookout Track on 25-26 May 2015


Weather permitting, the Parks and Wildlife Service will undertake a fuel reduction burn at the Wineglass Bay Lookout Track, within Freycinet National Park, on Monday 25 May and Tuesday 26 May. The burn is part of the statewide Fuel Reduction Program, which is aimed at reducing the bushfire risk to help protect lives and communities.

Freycinet National Park will remain open during the burn, with walking tracks at Sleepy Bay, Cape Tourville lighthouse, White Water Wall and Richardsons Beach accessible.

The Wineglass Bay Lookout track, Hazards Beach Track and Mt Amos will remain closed during the burn and re-open once it is safe to do so. It is very important that visitors respect these closures for their own safety.

For information about Freycinet walking tracks, contact the visitor centre on 6256 7000. A list of PWS planned burns is available on the PWS website at www.parks.tas.gov.au.
