Bushfire Protection

Latest Bushfire update: Fires can occur in the Blue Mountains during the bushfire season (1 October – 31 March). Often news of bushfires is greatly exaggerated by the media. This link will give you the latest updates during a bushfire situation.

The buildings are protected from bushfire with an external sprinkler system using the pool as a water supply. The system has proven successful as all buildings were unharmed during the fire storm in January 1994 that impacted our site.

Our site is also protected by hazard reduction work carried out by the Winmalee Rural Fire Brigade. We are thankful for the work they do in the protection of property for the local community.

We have a Bush Fire Emergency Management and Evacuation Plan that has been approved by the Rural Fire Service.
