Native Grass Burn Boambee and Macauleys Headlands

National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS), Coffs Harbour City Council, NSW Fire and Rescue and Rural Fire Service will join forces with Gumbaynggirr firefighters from the Durrandar Wajarr team to conduct ecological and cultural burns on Macauley's and Boambee headlands.

Originally scheduled for the 3rd to the 7th April 2018 the burns have been postponed due to unfavourable weather conditions.  

As the burn schedule is reliant on optimal weather conditions they will be rescheduled for a period in the coming months.

The community will be informed the morning the burns take place via Council's website and Facebook page. There will be officers present at the burn locations to ensure the safety of community members during the burn.

Maps of the burn areas can be seen below.
