An alert for a fire at Shark Creek in Clarence Valley was also upgraded to a watch and act on Monday morning amid worsening conditions. "It is impacting Peregian Beach front and Marcus Seaside".

"We will be relentless in trying to find you, so just don't do it", he said.

Some schools will be closed on Tuesday because of the bushfire threat.

Stanthorpe woman Samantha Wantling says the tension in the town is palpable, despite the news that fire crews have contained the blaze near the town.

That blaze is not threatening any homes but residents have been warned that strong winds are still making conditions volatile.

In a third video taken by Glenda Riley, the true picture of how enormous the fire emergency was can be seen with entire landscapes overtaken by the huge blaze.

The fire has already destroyed 11 homes that they know about.

But some residents are starting to return to check the extent of the damage.

Emergency Services Minister Craig Crawford said on Monday the emergency is far from over.

"I've never seen anything as bad as that".

"We appreciate this is a very hard time for everyone affected and we want them to know our government is here to support them with their recovery", Queensland Minister for State Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Planning (DSDMIP) Cameron Dick said.

Whereas the historic Binna Burra Lodge was burnt to an ember over the weekend as flames destroyed Lamington nationwide park, the adjoining Springbrook nationwide park - the place the movie star present is filmed - remained protected.

"However they had been told when they went in, so they were prepared for that".

All-around 100 law enforcement, friends and staff members who were sheltering at O'Reilly's Visitor Dwelling, at Canungra, had been safely and securely evacuated on Monday evening.

An RSPCA vet will also arrive in the area on Monday to help treat injured animals.

Twenty structures have been destroyed by bushfires since Thursday when the state's fire season began with severe to extreme conditions across much of the south.

The Insurance Council of Australia has also declared the situation a "catastrophe", ensuring victims' claims will be given priority.

The federal and state governments have promised assistance to those affected by the fires, including replenishing already dangerously low water supplies used to fight fires around Stanthorpe.

In the meantime, law enforcement have warned anyone caught deliberately lighting fires encounter lifetime imprisonment.

"Over 500 firefighters are still guarded houses [and] function to control fires in challenging conditions", that the RFS said in a statement.

That very same day some kids lit a blaze at Pimpama on the Gold Coastline.
