Hazard burning at Mt Walsh National Park

HAZARD burning in the Mt Walsh National Park has created a spectacular view for miles around today.

Queensland Fire & Rescue Services - Bundaberg Rural Operations acting area director Craig Magic said Queensland Parks and Wildlife officers are currently involved in a conservation burn in the Biggenden area as well as Berron near Mundubbera.

"A conservation burn is a low intense burn to reduce the fuel hazard and to retain as much of the natural habitat," he said.

"At present there is lots of fuel due to the recent rain."
