Fire services will take advantage of cooler weather this weekend, conducting hazard reduction burning on Willans Hill Reserve.
Up to two hectares of land between the reserve and Captain Cook Drive will be controlled burned, between 10am and 5pm on Sunday.
Residents are advised to keep windows closed and watch out for pets.
Success of the weekend's operation will depend on the forecast that presents in the moment.
"Each year there is limited opportunities where weather conditions are conducive to completing controlled burns," Operational Officer Bradley Stewart said.
"For a hazard reduction burn to be successful we require the right wind and temperature conditions and for ground fuels to be sufficiently dry."
Hazard reduction burning presents a defence against the summer severity.
"Hazard reduction is a vital element in helping to reduce the intensity of bush fires," officer Stewart said.
"This controlled burn will help protect properties and assets in the Willans Hill Reserve area and also assist firefighters to control any future bush fires."
