Devastating Fires ravaged Mallacoota from New Years eve.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Mallacoota and also the many holiday makers, who are now being evacuated by the Navy , as roads are still closed.
This will obviously impact on the community and planned events for 2020.

Mallacoota event 2020
Mallacoota and Cann River 2020 Cook commemorations for April, HAVE been cancelled!
We have heard from Mallacoota that because of continuing fires, the closed National Park and the recovery effort, that Mallacoota and Cann River have decided to cancel the Festival and the remaining events and take down the Festival website.
This district is still undergoing extreme problems and continuing fire events.
Parks Victoria have also closed Point Hicks and Tamboon Inlet plus the Croajingolong National Park due to fire risks in the area and road access problems.
It is not known when this will cease, at this stage.
Thus the Captain Cook Society (Aust) and New Zealand joint meeting planned for Mallacoota is Cancelled!
We are actively seeking to re site the proposed CCSA meeting to a location where more people might be encouraged to attend, advice on this decision will be advised as soon as possible, subject to a location and bookings being found.
Apologies to all affected by this news, however our thoughts and prayers are still with the people within these affected areas, and their ongoing struggles and challenges!
