Fire Danger Season and Restrictions


The Fire Danger Season

Mount Lofty Ranges Fire Danger Season extended until May 15


Due to lower than average rainfall and higher than average temperatures, the CFS has extended the Fire Danger Season for the Mount Lofty Ranges fire ban district until 15 May 2018. This encompasses the entire Barosa Council area.

The Fire Danger Season for the adjacent Mid North fire ban district (Light Regional Council) will conclude at midnight on 30 April 2018.

The burning of vegetation or garden prunings will need to be postponed until after 15 May 2018.

Farmers wishing to conduct broad acre burning during the fire danger season, as part of the preparation of their paddocks for the growing season must apply for a permit, which carry strict restrictions.
