Fire management at Piccaninny Plains involves prescribed burning in the early dry season over a 170,000 ha area. Prescribed burning operations are intended to break-up country, creating a patchwork of fuel loads of different ages.

This limits the spread of any wildfires later in the year and, importantly, ensures that the landscape contains patches of vegetation that is old growth (which many animals need for food and shelter). Fire is also used on Piccaninny Plains to control and reduce weed infestations.
