Fire Prevention

Property owners must take reasonable steps to protect their land from fire and to prevent or inhibit the outbreak of fire on the land, or the spread of fire through the land. The reduction of fuel and the appropriate management of on site vegetation (grass, tree cuttings or litter etc) are the best methods to minimise the potential for a fire.

Bushfire Management Area Plan and map can be found here.
