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?

[ED – And here I was thinking we could get through the day without raking over the coals]

UPDATED: The Rawhide Kid 2 has sent in the following image and asked that it be credited to: Politas – Wikipedia web Site.

While we’re on a related subject, where is that bike arena with all the cycle races I always see on WIN News?

It’s about 500m as the Magpie flys across the road from Eucumbene Dr of to get to it by road turn onto Uriarra Rd and follow it around past Coppins Crossing Rd and the turnoff is about 100m on your left after Coppins Crossing Road.

(If you look at the map on this site it has the bushfire memorial marked as well)

If you pull off to the side of cotter road just near the eucumbene drive intersection (eastbound), you walk from there. There is no car park, just a bit of gravel on the side of the road and a metal ‘gate’ (one of those things you can’t ride a bike through).

It is visible on google earth, but I don’t know how to insert an image – help anyone?

Just copy in the link.

Yes it is, I will go home via it today, and grab a photo.
Unless someone has stolen it.

You don’t hide your own Easter eggs do you Granny?
