The Project

We want to tell the story of the 1965 fires. The fires affected people from as far afield as Valencia Creek, Dargo, Omeo and Bruthen yet there is little information on the public record.

We want people to share their stories, photos and memories of the event, the people you helped, or who helped you, and the places affected.

If you were a child at the time what are your memories. Did you have to join the fight, help your parents? Or did you have to be evacuated?

What was the aftermath and clean up like?

What changed after the fires? What did people do differently? What did agencies do differently?

Thank you for sharing your recollections with us. If you have any queries please email admin at 1965gippslandbushfires@gmail.com.
