LNP Leader Deb Frecklington has revealed the LNP will roll out a traditional burning program run by Indigenous rangers in Wide Bay if it wins the next state election.
Ms Frecklington said the LNP would use knowledge and techniques that have evolved over tens of thousands of years to protect modern Queensland from bushfires.
Expanding the 'cool-burning' program run by the Gidarjil Development Corporation in Bundaberg is a key part of the 10-point bushfire strategy announced by the LNP on Monday.
"Indigenous Australians have lived in harmony with the environment for tens of thousands of years and they have so much to teach us," Ms Frecklington said.
"The Port Curtis Coral Coast traditional owners still use ancient fire-stick burning techniques to sensitively manage their lands and they're ready to help other communities do the same.
"I respect the skill and wisdom of Queensland's Indigenous rangers and believe it's time they had a greater role in bushfire management in this state."
'Cool' or traditional burning involves starting low-intensity fires, often at night or early morning. Techniques and timing vary according to each eco-system.
The LNP will provide funding to enable the Gidarjil Development Corporation rangers to protect more state land and work with private landowners.
LNP Member for Burnett Stephen Bennett said he had seen the effectiveness of traditional burning in his electorate.
"Traditional owners respect the land and understand it too," Mr Bennett said.
"The LNP's support for their practices will both protect Queenslanders and create valuable new opportunities and jobs for Indigenous people."
