Bushfire warning level: ADVICE


Queensland Fire and Emergency Services (QFES) advises there is a bushfire in Peregian.

You need to keep up to date and decide what actions you will take if the situation changes.

Currently as at 4pm Wednesday 11 September, a fire is no longer active within the Peregian area. Firefighters will remain on scene dampening down hotspots. 

Queensland Police Service (QPS) has now revoked the Peregian Springs and Peregian Beach PSPA, encompassing Peregian Springs, Peregian Beach, Peregian Breeze Estate, Weyba Downs, Marcus Beach and Castaways Beach. All residents can return to their homes, however should remain vigilant. 

Residents should avoid walking in areas affected by the fire, including the National Park between David Low Way and Emu Mountain Road and the Peregian Beach foreshore, as there may be hot spots under the sand that could cause significant damage.

People in the area will continue to be affected by smoke, which will reduce visibility and air quality. Residents are asked to close windows and doors and if suffering from a respiratory condition, keep their medication close by. 

Evacuation centres remain open at:
• Nambour Showgrounds on Coronation Avenue, Nambour
• Fishermans Road Multi Sports Centre at 108 Fishermans Road, Maroochydore
