Bushfire Memorial – Where the bloody hell is it?

By cranky - 18 January 2009 43

Todays CT had a couple of items re the fires of 6 years ago, including an item on the memorial.

It described the location as near the Cotter Rd. / Eucumbene Drive intersection, so jumped in the toy and went for a drive.

Whether by design or otherwise, it is not easy to find. There is no indication, road, signage, carpark or any other means to identify the location.

Can someone direct me to it?

Well done for getting an Article into The Chronicle advertising the facebook page for the Flood of 1971… I found this on the Bush Fire Memorial Site (includes pictures of the whole site from 18 Jan 2006).

I reckon it’s a pretty good memorial.

The bent poles are a snapshot of what that whole field of pine trees looked like after the fire had gone through. It looked like a scene from a nuclear holocaust movie. It was pretty eerie with all the trees frozen in time as if there was a howling wind going through there – even if there wasn’t a breath of wind.

The tree stump in Kambah is a good idea as well.
