Most Queensland plantations reopen as fire danger eases
Milder conditions and the little bit of rain we’ve had have reduced the risk to public safety and all HQP-managed plantations have now reopened, except for the Wongi and Elliot River plantations forests and The Lagoon in Toolara plantation forest, where the forest fire danger remains very high. Read more about The Lagoons closure here.
We’d like to thank you for your patience and commend everyone who complied with the closures for putting their safety and the safety of others first. This has allowed us to focus on battling the numerous fires across state forest, national park and farmland landscape over the past few weeks alongside QFES, QPWS and the Rural Fire Brigades, often with the support of police and SES to help manage public interaction.
Despite the break in the weather, fire season continues so please continue to observe caution and comply with responsible recreation requirements when visiting our plantation forests. If you do spot unattended fires or suspicious behaviour while out and about, please call 000.
