Wye River

The road to Wye River re-opened on 6 January and a couple of days later we headed down to the Wye Beach Hotel for lunch and to check out the scene. The good news is that the pub is intact and open for business. However, for a couple of kms the vegetation on both sides of the road is burnt, where the fire jumped across it and reached the beach.

The fire reached the beach in places

While many houses at Wye River are undamaged, it’s clear that a lot were lost, including a couple almost in the centre of town, just above the beach.
