A series of walking maps are being developed for Brown Hill. To have a look at the initial overview, you can download the 4-page draft here - Updated Draft Brown Hill Walking Maps
The majority of Brown Hill is designated as being a Bushfire Prone Area as it is on the rural-urban fringe of the city and is at risk of being impacted by bushfires especially from the north and north east. ALL of Brown Hill north of the freeway is within this Bushfire Prone Area. South of the freeway, generally, if your property is within 100m of bush or grassland you may be within that Bushfire Prone Area and at risk. Access this link for details.
