The hills flats are some of the most popular places to visit in the region, but the locals have to be careful.
The hills flats, also known as the “high-land” or “hills,” are the only area in Queensland with no government park and no national parks.
The area is also one of the worst affected by the bushfire and has become a haven for wildlife such as foxes, rabbits and possums.
They are also home to endangered seabirds and have seen a rise in illegal logging.
The area has been declared a national park by the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection (DEPHP).
The Department of Parks and Wildlife and the Department are also looking into the issue.
