Was Moroka Gorge/Snowy Bluff in last year's fires?

Postby PedroArvy » Thu 25 Mar, 2021 2:16 am

I am thinking of hiking to Snowy Bluff over Easter and was wondering if this area was burnt in last year's fires as per the map below. Would anyone know?

My recollection is that the there were fires around the Bluff and Catherine Saddle in 2019-2020 bushfire season.
I think the Snowy bluff area escaped fire.

Thanks for that useful map.
It looks like it wasn't burnt so I might make the trip up there soon.

Bushwalking Vic. were doing track clearing from the Horse camp hut campsites trail head to the first Moroka falls in Jan. 2022. I was there. I saw no signs of bushfire damage in that section of the Moroka river area.
