Some previous seasons have seen the Fire Danger Season extended, however due to the mild summer in the 2010/2011 season the Fire Danger Season has been brought to an early close in all 15 Fire Ban Districts. The full length of the Heysen Trail will reopen on 1st April 2011, just in time for the opening of the walk season.
In the unlikely event that severe or extreme fire danger conditions return after the Fire Danger Season has ended, the CFS can still invoke a Total Fire Ban. The Heysen Trail will be closed on these days.
