By now, most of you would have heard/seen/learnt about the horrific fires that have ravaged my new adopted state of Victoria, claiming almost 200 lives in the country’s worst natural disaster.
Even though the fires had struck (and are still burning) so close to where I live (less than 100km away), it wasn’t until the constant naming of Marysville – the small township that was completely wiped out in the raging fires – that it clicked with me that I had stopped there only in November last year on a long drive, to admire it’s natural beauty – including these majestic Steavensons Falls.
I’m saddened to think that this beautiful area of Victoria has been scorched black, and so many of it’s residents have perished.
If you are in a position to do so, consider making a donation to the relief effort.
