Feral Pig Aerial Shoot to Commence in June 2023

Council, in co-operation with the Department of Environment and Science and the Department of Resources, intends to conduct an aerial shoot to control feral pigs.

The areas covered during this program will include “The Orient”, Lamari’s on Suthers Road, “Mungalla”, Accornero’s on Abswold Road, and parcels of land that are under the management of participating organisations between and adjacent to Palm Creek to the North, and Insulator Creek to the South.

Weather permitting, this program will take place on Thursday 1 June 2023 and Friday 2 June 2023 between the hours of 5.30am and 6.30pm each day.

To ensure the safety of the public while this program is being conducted, access to the National Parks Estate, Bronte Road and the Halifax Bay Wetlands will be closed during these times.

Access to huts on Bronte Road will be permitted outside of the planned control times.

Should you require any further information or clarification concerning this matter, please contact Council’s Biosecurity Team Leader, Matthew Buckman on 4776 4740 for the necessary assistance.
