  • Wear a high UV and SPF sunscreen

  • Wear light, loose fitted clothing and a hat to protect your head and neck

  • Avoid the sun between 11am – 3pm if possible, or seek shade regularly

Heightened risk of fires during hot and dry weather

Weather conditions for the next few days will be extremely hot and dry. This means there will be a very high risk of accidental fires.

 

We want people to enjoy our green spaces in the sunshine. We also want to ensure their safety.  

 

Lighting any open flame, like a BBQ, firepit, or campfire, in these conditions is reckless and can easily cause a serious fire.  

 

We’re not trying to take the fun out of the heatwave, but for the sake of our parks – and of our staff and emergency services working in very high temperatures – please do not light fires or BBQs in our parks, country parks, beaches or along the heritage coast this weekend.
