I just saw the Herald today (library was closed yesterday so I hadn't read that one). I didn't realise how extensive these fires were. More extensive than usual. From Bateman's Bay along to Melbourne...

I remember there was a fire in Canberra the year before I went there as a summer scholar. The astronomy observatory was lost. That one was a bit more extensive than usual, too. People were told to clear out only because of the smoke and nobody expected the whole building to go up.

Wow.

I heard it is unclear how much Aborigine used to intentionally manage fires vs how much they occured naturally from storms and lightening strikes and the like. I imagine the Aborigine got pretty used to avoiding them / knowing where to clear out or they wouldn't have lasted as long as they did.

Yeah, koalas can't move fast because it is so metabolically costly to metabolise eucalyptus leaves that are so very dry.

Poor koalas.
