Bushfire season usually progresses through southern areas of Queensland as spring (September) approaches. It can extend into February in the southern and far southwestern areas. Fuel load, climate and weather conditions also influence these timeframes.

Don't be a Suzy. Have a 'what-if' survival plan and be prepared to leave early during bushfires.
