Hazard reduction burning is due to commence today (September 28) in Morton National Park and Kangaroo River Nature Reserve if weather is permitting.
The Fitzroy Falls area of Morton National Park and the Kangaroo River Nature Reserve will be closed for the operation.
The burns are part of NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service's (NPWS) aims to limit the potential spread of wildfires into the villages, and surrounding areas of Kangaroo Valley and Fitzroy Falls.
It is anticipated that the burn may produce visible smoke that can affect both areas.
Motorists who plan to travel on Nowra Road and Bendeela Road are advised to drive to conditions.
They are also advised to look out for any warning signs or instructions from fire crews or road traffic controllers.
Other burns may also be conducted in the region next week depending on weather conditions, resulting in visible smoke in the areas for a few days.
