Haven't heard of that poem before Graeme, he obviously knew the country well.

You have had your own disaster Greg. That's a real shame... :(

So glad those horrible fires are now out. We had our own fires 2 years ago on Saddleworth Moor, started by idiots having a barbecue and then by a complete moron again after the fireman had it under control, he started it again......

We could see the fires and smell the stench of burnt undergrowth 20 miles away.

Spelling mistake (Stance)...sorry..... :roll: :roll:

Greg,
I studied that poem way back in the 1960's at primary school, showing my age now.

I Just talked to a mate in Nowra and on New Years Eve he was getting ready to leave his house because of the fires, this week they have around 300mm of rain and there is more on the way with the cyclone. Landslides are now a big problem for them as there is no vegetation to hold the soil in place.

"Drought and flooding rains" to quote a line from another famous Australian poem.
