  • Total fire ban today due to severe bush fire risk. Bush fires are due to arrive in Woolongong tomorrow evening. It is now too late to leave the area.
  • I bet you didn't know that the fire fighters out there are mainly volunteers and they are putting their lives at risk to save us!...
  • My beautiful town burning to the crisp!!!!
  • 5th August 2019- The Smyck family are evacuating down to the lighthouse.
  • 10th August 2019-At the TV station updates of Bush fire progress are issued to those still in the area.
  • The view of Wollongong from the lighthouse peer.
  • An ember attack which is burning twigs and leaves blown around by the wind, hit the Clartricorn Barn.
  • Fire travels much faster uphill than downhill so living on a hill in a bush fire prone zone isn't the best choice.
