Hazard reduction burn

In accordance with State Legislation, a prescribed hazard reduction burn will be conducted on Mount Stuart Training Area which may generate smoke over the period 23rd to 26th June 2023 (inclusive).

A smoke haze may be evident for days after the burn.

Planned hazard reduction burns are conducted for a range of purpose, including to:

  • Reduce the likelihood and severity of bushfires on the training area and surrounding areas
  • Improve ecosystem health and resilience.

The ADF thanks the public for their patience and cooperation while this essential operation is being conducted.
