The Restricted Burning Period has the following guidelines:
It is unlawful to set fire to the bush during this time except in accordance with a PERMIT - contact the Shire Office at 56 Fowler St to request a permit.

The below website link will direct you to the Fire Behaviour Calculator (FBC) which is an online tool that calculates potential Rate of Spread, intensity, spotting, and flame length using variables inputted into fire spread models for different vegetation types.
The FBC ingests forecast weather from the Bureau of Meteorology into models for personalised locations and Fire Danger Rating and Fire Behaviour Index outputs relating to each fire behaviour model.
