Media Statement - Lake Leschenaultia Fire Danger Rating Closures

Published on Tuesday, 31 January 2023 at 12:02:12 PM

A number of residents have contacted the Shire this summer regarding the more frequent closure of Lake Leschenaultia on extreme fire danger rating days.

Please see a video message from Shire President James Martin about the Shire’s independent review into the closures. Until our independent review is complete, we will adopt the higher risk tolerance of our nearby parks. In other words, when the state parks of John Forrest, Greenmount and Walyunga National Parks are open, the lake will also be open.
