Lower Wonga - Woolooga Fires

It's an easy drive from Maroochydore to Lower Wonga where BlazeAid has been given use of the Community Hall and rural fire shed to set up camp.

We are here to help rebuild farm fences after the September fires. Just a couple of teams went out on Monday but by the end of the week, the volunteer numbers had increased to about 20. The weather, storm season in the south-east Qld, is slowing things down but has not yet dampened enthusiasm. A benefit of this soaking rain is that those tree stumps still smouldering weeks after the main event will surely be out now.
