"The past is never fully gone. It is absorbed into the present and the future. It stays to shape what we are and what we do."
Sir William Deane, Governor-General of Australia, Inaugural Vincent Lingiari Memorial Lecture, August 1996.

1939 Fires

This map has been derived from an FCV map produced in 1939. The map provides an indication of the extent of the fires across the State during the 1938/39 fire season. Given the scale and the limitations that would have been inherent in producing the original map, DO NOT expect this map's boundaries to be accurate enough to use at a local level.

Erica, Tyers, Thomson Tramlines and Sawmills (1910 -1950)

This map is derived entirely from maps prepared in 1983 by Mike McCarthy of the LRRSA. While Mike's maps have been used, there may be inaccuracies in the digitisation processes that have produced this map. There is therefore still editing work to do, including the insertion of photos at some of the identified locations, and the identification of FCV sections of the network. The Erica-Moe railway line is also not differentiated at this stage.

To present the map in a relatively uncluttered form, location labels will only appear as popups at this stage. Move your mouse carefully over the location to see the name and type of the location.

Mt Disappointment Tramlines & Sawmills

This map is based upon tramline data prepared by Colin Harvey, and other locations form a 1970 FCV Map prpeared by M Wade. Have confidence in the tramline routes, but the sawmill lcation information needs to be checked. It is however, useful as an indicator of the extent of timber harvesting in the late 1800's and early 1900's.
