Prescribed burning

Between the months of April and September travellers through along the Canning Stock Route are likely to see fires lit by indigenous rangers and Traditional Owners. This is an important part of landscape management, reducing the risks associated with hot summer wildfires, protecting cultural sites, communities and critical wildlife habitats.

Travellers concerned with the presence of fires in the landscape should exercise caution, and contact local communities, each PBC or email enquiries@canningstockroute.net.au for up to date information on fires in the area. Should rangers be in the area, they can be contacted via UHF channel 40.
