LETTER: Bushfire museum plan

SIR, – I would like to invite readers of The Weekly Advertiser to have their say on a new bushfire museum and education centre to raise awareness of the history, stories and lessons of the 2009 Victorian Bushfires, as well as other significant fires.
Bushfires have impacted every community at some time and Wimmera residents can be part of the planning of the new museum by participating in an online public consultation process which seeks input from bushfire-affected communities, as well as those involved in bushfire recovery, CFA volunteers and indigenous community.
The Bushfire Anniversary Advisory Group has recommended creating a bushfire museum with a reflective space to commemorate our past and educate generations into the future.
The consultation will seek community views on how a centre or program would function, possible locations if a permanent site was to be established, and what visitors would expect to see and learn.
Feedback gathered during the consultation process will help shape the next steps for the project, which is being led by Creative Victoria in consultation with groups including the CFA.
The Victorian Bushfire Centre public consultation is open until August 15 and details can be found at
We want to hear from all Victorians to help shape a new bushfire museum and education centre, because we want this to be a centre for everyone.
