Ecological burn at St Helena Bushland Reserve

Thu 14 December, 2017

As part of our fire management practices within bushland reserves we intend to conduct a prescribed burn together with the Country Fire Authority.


St Helena Bushland Reserve, Eltham North (within the western corner of the fenced reserve near Argyll and Scone Courts).

The reserve will be closed to the public whilst the prescribed burn is being conducted. Please seek an alternative route on the day. 


It is anticipated the burn will occur on Thursday 14 December, 5:30pm

Why carry out the burn?

  • To help stimulate native flora regeneration of rare and threatened species pertaining to this original plant community
  • Reduce the fire fuel load within this part of the reserve
