Along Jamison Creek, even more ferns!

It’s been a year since the fire, so here are some more photos (taken on Tuesday 15th January)

great change since October

ferns and grasses

Overall the area is doing well and is much improved since September/October, when lack of rain killed off most of the regrowth. If we get reasonable rain over the next few months, the area should be on the way to complete recovery.




After the fire along Jamison Creek

The fire burnt along the western side of the Creek, from about 100 metres from the Fletcher St track junction, to about 200 metres short of the Parkes St track junction. It started about 12.05 am on Monday 22nd. These photos were taken on Friday 26th at about 3.30 pm.

First burnt area, 33º 43′ 13.290″, 150º 22′ 38.030″

You can find the metadata (including co-ordinates) of any photo using Metapicz . There is also a Firefox extension that shows the data.


Note the buildings at the top

Some of the walkway timbers were charred.

Caused by two fireworks.



A Himalaya of mulch!

Twenty minutes later, there was more!

On the western side, the Twin Peaks!

Let’s hope the Council has plans!
