2019-20 Bushfire History Project

21 May 2020

The Royal Commission into National Natural Disaster Arrangements has launched the 2019-20 Bushfire History Project to document the recent bushfires for the future.

During the Commission's community forums, many people shared stories, videos and photos taken during the fires. Each story is unique. It is also part of our national history.

The Commission's 2019-20 Bushfire History Project is an opportunity for people to record their personal experience to form part of Australia's historical record.

The Commission invites people to submit videos or photographs taken during the bushfires or the ongoing recovery.
People can also submit a short video account explaining what they experienced during the bushfires.

The collection of videos and photographs will be catalogued to allow future generations to understand what happened during the 2019-20 bushfires and the affect these fires had on our nation and its people.

In some cases, material collected as part of the 2019-20 Bushfire History Project may also be considered for use in evidence. The Commission will seek permission from individual contributors prior to using material as evidence.

For further information about how to submit a video or photographs visit the 2019-2020 Bushfire History Project webpage.

The Commissioners and Commission staff have also recorded a video for your veiwing.
