Planned burns scheduled in Grampians National Park in May 2022
Tuesday 10 May, 2022
Forest Fire Management Victoria have scheduled planned burns in the Grampians National Park in the coming days, with the lighting of the burns currently scheduled to begin on Tuesday 10 May, subject to suitable weather conditions.
To enable FFMV staff to safely operate in the burn area and to provide protection of park visitors, closures will be in place on some roads, walking tracks and campgrounds during ignition, and until the burn is declared safe. This may be for one day or multiple days at a time.
You may see or smell smoke, or come across heavy machinery and other operational equipment in the area.
Planned burning is a critical part of park management and reducing bushfire risk in the Grampians National Park. The right weather conditions are needed for a safe and effective burn- cool to warm temperatures, very little wind, no rain. These are the same great conditions for a trip to the park. Because planned burning is so dependent on the right weather conditions, we cannot give exact dates or times when they will occur. If weather conditions change, the burn may be cancelled or postponed - potentially impacting future bookings.
For further information on the closures and detours please contact Brambuk The National Park and Cultural Centre in Halls Gap on 8427 2058 and for park information or to rebook your stay please contact our customer service team on 13 1963.
