Prohibited Burn Period Extended AGAIN

Prohibited Burning Period extended to 16 April 2024

The Prohibited Burning Period in the Shire of Augusta Margaret River has been extended again, and will apply until midnight, Tuesday 16 April 2024.  This means no fires can be lit in the open air.  

The continued lack of rainfall has resulted in abnormally dry conditions throughout the Shire, which means in the right conditions, a fire could quickly get out of control. The Prohibited Burning Period has therefore been extended to keep the community safe. 

All visitors and residents are urged to remain respectful of the fire restrictions that have been in place this fire season. The simple rule is - No fires.

For more information about fire requirements during the prohibited period please refer to the Firebreak Notice and Bushfire Information 2022-2023.
