Kyneton although farming land does have a lot of bushland/forests especially on the hills. About a month ago there were fires during the heatwave. These were 10 to 15 kms away from the township.
We drove by the area last Sunday without knowing where the fires were and then as we turned a bend, the evidence of the fire was around us. It travelled from the forests to the roadway as you can see in these photos.
The fires closed the main road from Kyneton to Revesdale. 

If you look closely to the trees on the hill, you will find that they are now just twisted silhouettes. 

It was just before the burnt out paddocks that we noticed literally hundreds of kangaroos grazing in farmland paddocks. We didn't realise until we came across the charred paddocks and forest that they had come down from their now black habitat to feed. It was quite an amazing site to see so many kangaroos in one area, many with young in their pouches.

You lookin' at me?


  1. It always amazes me how nature recovers so well from fires. Green will be popping through in no time and most of the trees will be shooting again as well. Have a good day Diane

    1. We've had a bit of rain lately and you can see regeneration already Diane.
