The heat is on!
But don’t worry about the smoke that you might see today. Council has advised there’s going to be a back burn on Mt Coot-tha this morning, starting at 9:30.
41ha will be burned off between Sir Samuel Griffith Drive and the Western Freeway and the Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens.
Toowong, Chapel Hill and Indro might get some smoke but it’s expected to clear pretty soon.
Staff will also be on site Friday to ensure safety of the site. Public access to the Citriodora and Frogmouth Trails may be closed for up to two weeks after the burn.
