Prescribed burns in Cape Burney

The City of Greater Geraldton wishes to advise it will be undertaking several prescribed burns on the eastern side of the Greenough River Walk Trail in Cape Burney on Saturday 3 August 2019.

The burn will commence at approximately 9am and the Greenough River Walk Trail will NOT be closed to the community during this time.

The Cape Burney, Waggrakine and Moonyoonooka Volunteer Bushfire Brigades will be on site to control the burn rate and extinguish the fire by the end of the day.

Smoke from this prescribed burn may affect the surrounding areas. If you have a respiratory condition or are affected by smoke you should contact your local doctor or call Health Direct on 1800 022 222.

Prescribed burns are undertaken by the City to mitigate the severity of bushfires and to help protect lives and property by reducing the build-up of flammable fuel loads.

Members of the community are requested to exercise caution and obey all warning signs and directions from authorised City personnel and contractors.

If weather conditions are not favourable this burn will be postponed until a future date.

The City apologises for any inconvenience this may cause. If you have any queries please contact the City on (08) 9956 6600 or email
