Wander by the River
at Batemans Bay NSW Australia
At the time, I read and saw how the bushfires affected Batemans Bay and the surrounding areas last summer. Closed roads, no power, no petrol, closed supermarkets, and the like, left residents and holidaymakers stranded.
And, they were forced to survive in the smoke-filled air from the bushfires.
Mogo Village & Wildlife Park
Not far away, you can visit Mogo. It's a village that lost some buildings due to the bushfires.
But, for me, it was the scenes on TV showing Mogo Wildlife Park. The bushfires from Clyde Mountain threatened the wildlife park.
The owner and workers at the zoo stayed to protect the animals. On the broadcasts, you saw how they drove around the park with portable water tanks spraying water.
