For hazard reduction burning information, major wildfire updates and a list of all current incidents in NSW, please visit the NSW Rural Fire Service website.
It is essential that if you are planning back country hiking, camping or four wheel drive access into national parks that you check with your local National Parks and Wildlife Service Office first to obtain the latest information.
Please note some National Parks and reserves have burnt areas due to hazard reduction burning or wildfires. It is very important that members of the public stay out of burnt bushland areas for the following reasons:
- for safety reasons – only trees directly adjacent to the tracks/trails have been assessed for dangerous tree limbs. Trees inside the burnt areas, however, have been damaged by fire and branches/trees could fall down and injure someone.
- to help the bushland regenerate – by keeping off the newly burnt ground it will protect and enable new growth to form
- to prevent unauthorised tracks forming throughout the bushland.
