St Georges Parade FirePrint Page Print this page

Memorial plaque and bench unveiled on the first anniversary of the bushfire that took a terrible toll on the street in 2013. 

The plaque also pays tribute to the emergency services personnel and the community fire unit workers whose efforts ensured that no lives were lost, although nine houses were destroyed (seven in St Georges Parade and two others on the Darling Causeway).

On October 17 2013, a 496ha fire ripped through Mt York Road, St Georges Parade and the Darling Causeway in the rural hamlet of Mount Victoria destroying as many as a dozen of the more than 20 homes on the street and numerous vehicles.
