Fire on the Plateau: a history of fire and its management in Stanley

Community Event

23 Aug 2019 to 24 Apr 2020

Stanley Athenaeum’s current exhibition ‘Fire on the Plateau’ commemorates 10 years since the bushfires of 2009.

‘Fire on the Plateau’ documents how bushfires affect communities, especially in the aftermath, and how governments and local regions change and plan for subsequent fire events.

Local historian Dr. Jacqui Durrant has researched fire on the Stanley area over the past sixty thousand years and the exhibition is curated by Ali Rowe M.A.
