Hi there readers! Just a quick update coming into the long weekend.
Recent bushfires around Victoria have stymied my plans to go to the Alpine region and climb Mt Feathertop this Australia day long weekend, but it did bring to the forefront of my mind that there are resources out there people should be using during the summer months.
Most of the states now have a Mobile APP that you can download, I’m not going to provide links because they’re are too many platforms and states and the page will be full of links.
However I will provide URLS for those unfamiliar here are a couple of current bushfire location resources you should know about. Have a good safe long weekend everybody.
