Before the fires back in 2006SEP17 I hiked up and around the Bowden Spur Rd which cuts through the Kinglake area up from Hurstrbridge, Arthurs Creek and Strathewen. The shots here are before the fire came through.
Pat O'Burne a Telstra technician on #774melbourne reports telephone services being resumed in Kinglake telephone exchanges such as this one which I think is the one refered to in this picture by Colin Wilson are being replaced. I think it's around the photos being shown here because I know this shot is pretty close down the road from this shot. Mobile phones and chargers are in demand. Land lines are down and SatPhones are being used by CFA. This accounts for the minimal information coming in from Kinglake, Kinglake West and the area around them.
This shot is looking away from Melbourne on the Bowden Spur/Kinglake Rd.
