On 26th October 2019 a potentially catastrophic fire began at Failford which ended up travelling under strong north west winds to the Scribbly Gum Estate off Aquatic Road which leads to Wallamba Ski Lodge.
The fire jumped the Lakes Way and burned all the way to Black Head where it threatened Hallidays Shores over 55 Retirement Village before jumping Black Head Road and threatening homes at Tallwoods Village.
I ended up evacuating from my home to Taree overnight and took this image next morning.
