But this time it did burn through about 5 of our 10 acres…..fortunately for us the back five acres away from the house and animal/food production areas.
Nonetheless, it caused plenty of damage to the natural bush plus the areas we had been regenerating-
the fences were either burnt or cut by the fire brigade to get to the fire. What an amazing job they do!
The water pipes to each paddock for the sheep were melted, and we lost four struts and strainers for the gates…..
The Australian bush is amazing though, and will often come back very well after a bushfire…..so fingers crossed.
