COFFS Coast Rural Fire Service crews tasked to fight bushfires near Coonabarabran and Baradine have witnessed first hand the terrible lost of property, stock and homes. 

Coffs Harbour and Bellingen crews have been in the thick of the bushfire containment efforts in the Warrumbungle National Park this week - the state's worst bushfire in more than a decade. 

The fire, which started last Saturday, has now destroyed 51 homes and burnt out some 45,000 hectares of bush.  

News reports on the devastation have stirred up strong emotions across the state and charitable efforts are now under way to help the victims of the Coonabarabran fires.  

In a show of public generosity several major monetary donations have been made to the Warrumbungle Shire Mayor's Bushfire Appeal. 

People considering donating household goods, food and clothing to the bushfire victims have instead been instructed to stage garage sales or fundraising events to raise much needed funds.  

Donations can be made to the appeal through the Commonwealth Bank:

  • Account Name: Warrumbungle Shire Council Mayor's Bushfire Appeal
  • BSB: 062-524
  • Account: 10133579

All donations over $2.00 are tax deductible.
