"Bush Fires" Australia Warnings Or Dangers Tip by keeweechic

Australia Warnings and Dangers: 231 reviews and 207 photos


Bushfires are common in Australia. Known also in other countries as wildfires and brushfires or forest fires, they are particularly severs as eucalyptus tree leaves contain large amounts of oil which act a lot like any other oil and burn very fast.

When camping, make sure you extinguish your fires completely. Be careful of cigarette butts. If you see smoke in the close proximity, head for the nearest open space.
