HAZARD burns to prevent the risk of future bushfires have continued in the Guy Fawkes River National Park.

The National Parks and Wildlife Service' (NPWS) autumn hazard reduction program was in a remote area of the Park on the northern edge of the Red Range Plateau within the Bob's Creek catchment.

NPWS Dorrigo Plateau area manager Janelle Brooks said the latest low intensity burn was undertaken ahead of rain predicted for later this week.

"The latest burn follows recent burns undertaken in Guy Fawkes River National Park including at Chaelundi Mountain and at Diamond Falls in the upper Guy Fawkes gorge north of the Ebor/Guyra Road at Wongwibinda", she said.

These burns are some of many being undertaken by NPWS across NSW as part of the NSW Government's $62.5 million package to boost bushfire preparedness and double hazard reduction in the State's national parks.
