Wooroloo Bushfire: One year on

This time last year, a bushfire that started at Wooroloo in the Perth Hills raged for days and burnt almost 11,000 hectares.  A total of 86 homes were destroyed and a further 200 properties damaged.

While fortunately no lives were lost, the impact on the local community was dramatic. In response, Vinnies WA launched the Bushfire Recovery Appeal.

A year on, we’ve published the Wooroloo Bushfire Update, which you can read here.

You can read about the impact we’ve had so far and hear from a resident we’ve supported about her journey to rebuild her family’s life.
