Hi All, we have just returned from the long weekend spent in Gippsland - away from the fires. Had a wonderful and relaxing time. Stopped at the Caravan Park store in Nowa Nowa for some breakfast on the way there and got chatting to the manager. She mentioned that they had been evacuated the previous week and many campers headed up to Narooma then returned when it was open again. She mentioned that in 25 years of being there, they have just had their quietest Christmas. An opinion I can believe. We camped at a place that is accessible to 2WD and often run the risk of getting groups of people hooning in and wreaking havock. It is normally quite full for the small area it is - especially on a long weekend during summer. This time we did not see a soul for three days - except for one local who appeared to check out what the fishing was like.
I guess my point is don't delay your trip for fear of the fires. If you check all the right places (including the weather forecast) you will know if it is safe to visit or not. Please go and support the local communities - they really are feeling the pinch.

My brother and i had a beer in NOWA NOWA at the town hall, about a year ago, with a chap called BOB. Nice bloke , was wondering if it was the same chappy .He is well worth the time to have a chat about the local area and all things that happen in that town.

Didn't get his name. Has bee hives on his property on the hwy. Very interesting guy. Showed us some gum trees that were budding - explained it was an indication of the change of season as these particular trees flower in winter. Also explained about others that flower at the height of summer which have now finished flowering - he knew all about them, told us it helped him know what the bees would be doing. Amazing stuff.
