Background

Since mid-2019 the City of Adelaide (CoA) has been working with the Kaurna community, Department for Environment and Water (DEW) and other key stakeholders to undertake a pilot bio-cultural burn in a small area of the Adelaide Park Lands.

This project was initiated in response to outcomes from CoA’s Integrated Biodiversity Management Plan 2018 – 2023 and Stretch Reconciliation Plan 2018 – 2021 related to incorporating Kaurna knowledge into management of the Park Lands.


Project Information

On 4 Dec 2019 the Reconciliation Committee recommended that Council supports this project, and this motion was passed by Council on 10 Dec 2019. This project was presented to the Adelaide Park Lands Authority on 5 March 2020.

This project carries significant cultural importance for the Kaurna community, the Traditional Owners of the Adelaide region. The City of Adelaide is proud to be working with the Kaurna community to trial the return of fire to the Adelaide Park Lands.

The trial bio-cultural burn is intended to assist in the ecological management of a section of the Key Biodiversity Area in Golden Wattle Park / Mirnu Wirra (Park 21W). The fire will be low in intensity and pose no public health or safety risk to nearby residents, businesses or Park Lands users. The bio-cultural burn will be undertaken by trained members of the Kaurna community alongside DEW fire management personnel.

Pre-burn ecological surveys have already been conducted and ongoing monitoring and management will allow CoA to assess and respond to the effects of the burn.
