2014 North Australia Bushfire Seasonal Outlook

Patchy areas of northern Australia face the prospect of an above normal bushfire season this year, due to above average rainfall in the months leading up to the main fire season.

The Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC Northern Australia Seasonal Bushfire Outlook for the Northern Territory, and northern Queensland and Western Australia, shows a mixed prospect mainly due to the high rainfall in most areas but an extended dry period across central and into southern Queensland.

Post fire field work
Australia will be linked into a global research effort into disaster risk reduction through the Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC.
