Amazing when you know how flat it is out there, you wonder how it's possible, but I've seen the water level marks on the shop walls. I was impressed travelling out to Wee Waa (pronounced Wee War for those who are wondering) when all you could see was scattered trees, all the way to the horizon in places! Once did a shopping run to Narrabri in the farms' Holden ute, foot flat to the floor all the way for 25 miles.😊😁 Once drove to the end of Ku-Ring-Gai Chase (opp Palm beach) and thought at the time, not a good place to be caught in a fire, (no way out).
About 10yrs after I came back to NZ they had a big fire right through there which took out Skippys' home and I think just missed the Bahai temple. Galston Gorge is another place not to get stuck in! Always made me wonder why people built wooden houses in amongst some of the most flammable trees in the world. Greens have got a lot to do with the situation these days with their loony ideas.
Only morons would stop people trying to clear the kindling at ground level! Really needs a change to more fire resistant homes to suit the environment (a bit like putting your house on piles where it floods often) Nice to be individual with houses, but life's more important. Govt really needs to get A into G and get something rolling with new house builds.
