Restricted Burning Period starts on 1 November 2023. Prohibited Burning Period starts on 15 December 2023.

As we are in the Restricted Burning Period, you are not permitted to burn without a Fire Permit.

Permits can be obtained through your local Fire Control Officer listed in the Fire Break Order sent with your Rates notices, or alternatively it can be found on the Shire website. If the FCO is unavailable, please reach out to the Shire and ask to speak to the Community Emergency Services Manager or the Ranger.

Fire prevention measures must be completed, and all properties cleared of fire hazards before 1 December each year to reduce the risk of fires during the bushfire season. Shire Rangers commence annual property inspections on 1 December to ensure they comply with Council’s Fire Break Order. Fire breaks shall be 2m wide constructed to a mineral earth standard free of all flammable material and maintained throughout the entire compliance period.

Please be aware that, due to the impact of smoke, burning is still prohibited on land under 2000 m2.

Following this period, as of December 15 2023 and until 31 March 2024, we will be in the PROHIBITED BURNING PERIOD.

During this time, lighting a fire is prohibited, and also prohibited on any day where the Fire Danger Forecast is High or above, or if a Total Fire Ban has been declared. As these dates are subject to change, please check with the Shire prior to lighting any fires. 


You can’t get back what you’ve lost. 

We want everyone to be prepared for an emergency, whether it’s a fire, flood or other crisis. Too many conversations after an emergency begin with “I wish I had…” People wish they’d taken the kids’ baby photographs, kept their passports safe, upped their insurance, or checked in with their neighbours. It’s these conversations that drive us to empower everyone in our community to prepare.
