The Beerburrum plantation closure includes all logging areas in the Glasshouse Mountains, Bribie Logging Area (near Ningi), Toorbul Logging Area and Woodford Logging Area.
The listed plantations are closed to public traffic until Tuesday 27 February 2018.
HQPlantations is appealing to the public to respect this closure to protect the plantation road network and ensure that safe and responsible access to the plantations can be restored to as soon as possible.
