Community Consultation

Fire Agencies (Shire of Augusta Margaret River, Department of Biodiversity Conservation and Attractions, Department of Fire and Emergency Services) will, in the coming weeks, commence important planned burning activities. These planned burns are critical for reducing fuel loads surrounding town sites in order to reduce impact of wild fires on homes and other infrastructure should they occur.

Hazard Reduction Burns are planned burns to be completed in and around Margaret River Shire Reserve 18720. This will necessitate the need to close the Wadani Track adjacent to Railway Terrace for a period of time. 










The production of smoke can have impacts on the health of some people which can be reduced by:

  • Removing yourself from the area (visit friends and family in other areas)
  • Close windows, doors and turn off air conditioning
  • Bring in washing
  • Plan not to drive during the burn, or if driving turn car air conditioning to recycle
  • Reduce speeds and follow traffic instructions
  • Avoid the area
