In 2018, the Bushfire Advisory Group – made up of local community members and chaired by Hon John Brumby AO – recommended the creation of a program or space that would provide bushfire education and raise awareness of the recent and historical bushfires that have impacted Victoria.
This online consultation seeks community views on topics such as the need for a bushfire centre, the best way to realise the concept, possible locations if a permanent site were to be established and what visitors would expect to see and learn during a visit.
