Restricted Burning Period Extended

Until 28 April 2024 (subject to change)

As a result of unexpected dry weather conditions, the restricted burning period has been extended for the coastal localities within the Shire of Dandaragan.

This area includes all properties WEST of Munbinea Road, in a line extending from the Shire’s northern boundary on Cockleshell Gully Road, along Munbinea Road to the corner of Wongonderrah Road, then stretching south in a straight line to the intersection of Meadows Road and Indian Ocean Drive, ceasing at the southern boundary of the Shire on Indian Ocean Drive.

Anyone wishing to light a fire west of this boundary will require a permit to burn unless the fire complies with the Shires Camping and Cooking Fire Policy. A permit to burn can be obtained from a Fire Control Officer, contacts for which can be found in the Fire Break & Hazard Reduction Notice or on the Shires website.

Landowners situated to the east of this boundary are requested to limit their burning activities to essential agricultural, hazard reduction, or business needs until there is an improvement in burning conditions. Top of Form


Please ensure that you inform your neighbours, check for Total Fire Bans and are aware of the weather conditions before lighting a fire during this time.
