Today we went to visit our daughter in a tiny town called Kersbrook. This town was in the centre of the horrific bushfires I wrote about earlier. The fire came to within 100 metres of there house on several sides. Strange that a week ago we were packing our car to evacuate our house because we were in a danger zone, now a week later we are having extreme weather warnings that in the next 48 hours we will receive torrential rain - the heaviest falls in 30 years and the possibility of flooding. A country of extremes indeed!
These photos were taken on Checkers Hill Road. In a week or so this road will feature in the cycling "Tour Down Under" which is telecast around the world.

|Looking to the left as far as you can see the country has burnt to a cinder|
There is mile upon mile of similar country that will take years to return to it's natural beauty.
