Mt Bedford Hazard Reduction


National Parks and Wildlife Service report that despite some overcast weather on the weekend of May 10th and 11th, a good result was achieved on the Mount Bedford hazard reduction burn.

The burn covered an area of nearly 2,000ha south of Bedford Creek and the villages of Wentworth Falls, Bullaburra, Lawson and Hazelbrook.

The burn continued to produce smoke whilst small internal pockets continue to burn out, however, it remained well contained.

The Anderson Fire Trail / Bedford Trail (to Murphies Glen) cycling and walking route are now reopened and the Ingar Camping Area is now also open.

Visitors are advised to check the NPWS website for up to date closure information.

NPWS thanks the RFS volunteers involved in the operation for their valuable assistance on the day and the Blue Mountains community and visitors for their patience and understanding whilst burning operations were undertaken. (photos NPWS & Amy Davis)
