Bushfire management

The City of Hobart is one of the most bushfire-prone cities in Australia. To lower the risk, the City has reduced flammable materials in its forests and protected Hobart with fuel breaks.

Reducing flammable materials in our forests and creating fuel breaks is critical to preparing for every bushfire season.

We’ve done everything we can to help protect people, property and our natural environment from the risk of destructive wildfire.

We now need residents to do the same on their properties to help keep life and property safe from the threat of bushfire.
