On this page you will find some stories of recovery from the 2019-20 'Black Summer' bushfires. They capture a moment in time during the journey of different people affected in different ways. They tell stories like that of so many around Australia and describe things people are continuing to work through or have found helpful.
While reading these stories, please remember there is no correct pace for personal bushfire recovery. Go at a speed that suits you and if you ever need help, please do not hesitate to contact us or message us via Facebook.
Navigating life after the fires looks different for everyone and there is no single journey to recovery. Seeing the choices other people make in their recovery can help you make your own decisions. As a national agency we seek to share lessons learned and community experiences.
We are adding more stories all the time. If you would like to share your experience we would love to hear from you – contact the NBRA.
