BUSHFIRE RECOVERY INFORMATION AND SUPPORT

Share this

Tasmanian’s impacted by the current bushfires can now access Bushfire Recovery Hubs across the state, with access to services and organisations.

In December 2018 and January 2019 dry lightning strikes ignited a significant number of bushfires across Tasmania which have threatened communities, created major disruption, and caused considerable damage across many remote wilderness areas.

Over 205,000 hectares of land has been affected by the bushfires, with multiple fires continuing to burn.

The Tasmanian Government will continue to work with individuals, community groups, local government and the Australian Government to ensure the needs of affected communities are met as they address the social, economic, infrastructure and environmental impacts of this natural disaster.
