Jagun Nature Reserve Hazard Reduction Burn

The NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is planning a hazard reduction burn in Jagun Nature Reserve from Thursday 20 June, weather permitting.

Hazard reduction burn

The hazard reduction burn will treat approximately 7 hectares of bushland, 3 kilometres north of Valla Beach.

The planned burns will help to improve protection for rural properties and nearby communities in the event of future bushfires. Planned low-intensity burns also aim to improve the park's biodiversity and provide safer access for firefighters.

Neighbouring rural and residential properties may be impacted by smoke, which is expected to be around for 2 days.

Please refer to the NPWS alerts and closures for details. Visitors must still check NPWS Alerts for up-to-date information.
