Update: Evacuations for Noosa bushfires

myPolice on 

Authorities will today be working to repatriate residents displaced by bushfires in the declared disaster area surrounding Noosa.

Residents who remain evacuated are now allowed to return to their homes in controlled stages, the first stage being Noosa North Shore, Noosa Banks and Daintree Park.

Police will be on scene managing barge transport and modified road closures on McKinnon Drive.

Police are urging everyone to remain patient and not converge on the area all at once, and to follow directions. Locals should not return to their homes unless advised to do so by authorities as it may still not be safe.

Residents in Cooroibah and Ringtail Creek must not return to their properties, as conditions are still too dangerous.

Police will continue to actively patrol fire-affected areas to mitigate opportunist crime and protect property.

There are no substantiated reports of theft of property, however any residents who return home and suspect criminal activity or feel they may be unsafe are urged to contact police.

Tourists are reminded to please stay away from the affected zones and allow members of the community to safely and promptly return to their residences.

Police will continue to provide information based on advice from the Bureau of Meteorology and Queensland Fire and Rescue Service in relation to what the fire will do in the future with the predicted atmospheric conditions.

Police and emergency services would like to thank all members of the Noosa community for their understanding and corporation. We urge everyone to remain vigilant and keep updated with the below messaging systems.

Call Triple Zero (000) immediately if you believe you are under threat.

Due to the continuing declared disaster situation and unpredictable fire threat some residents within the Noosa local government area will not be able to return to their homes tonight.

Police are urging all residents in Noosa Banks, Noosa North Shore and areas of Cooroibah and Ringtail Creek already evacuated not to return to their properties, as conditions are still too dangerous. These areas are pictured in the map provided.

McKinnon Drive is currently closed from Louis Bazzo Drive in the north to Yellowwood Close in the south, except for residents evacuating those locations.

Police will continue to actively patrol the evacuated areas to mitigate opportunist crime and protect property. Currently, there is no new information of property loss.

Fires by their very nature are unpredictable and the current fire threat remains and is consistently changing to the weather conditions.

Residents of Tewantin outside of the evacuation boundary are now permitted to return to their homes.

As this fire threat is still ongoing, this is a reminder that it is no time for curiosity. If you are not a resident, please stay away from the area and allow members of the community to safely and promptly return to their homes.

Members of the community will continue to see a large police presence whilst residents travel back to their homes.

All evacuation centres will remain open, for those that wish to delay their return.

  • Noosa leisure Centre (7 Wallace Drive, Noosaville)
  • The J (60 Noosa Drive, Noosa Heads)
  • Cooroy Library (9 Maple Street, Cooroy)
  • Noosaville Library (7 Wallace Drive, Noosaville)
  • Noosa Christian Outreach Church (202 Eumundi Noosa Road, Noosaville)

Police and emergency services would like to thank all members of the Noosa community for their understanding and corporation. We urge everyone to remain vigilant and keep updated with the below messaging systems.

Call Triple Zero (000) immediately if you believe you are under threat.
