It is not even summer yet and hundreds of bush fires are burning in Queensland and NSW. The forests and grasslands are so dry from lack of rain and there are strong winds pushing the fires into residential areas. Many homes and a forest resort have been burnt down.
It is a bit of a worry living right next door to a forest. Luckily, we are safe at the moment but the north coast and the south coast hinterland are burning. Many homes have been lost at Perigean Beach where we have often spent holidays on the Sunshine Coast just north of Brisbane.
