Marysville,

Australian Muscle Car - - Tarmac Muscle -

sadly, is bet­ter known for the ‘Black Satur­day’ fires of 2009 in which 45 peo­ple died and 90 per cent of the town’s build­ings were de­stroyed. Seven years on and the re­build­ing phase con­tin­ues, but ev­i­dence of the dis­as­ter re­mains plain to see. Across large sec­tions of the top of Lake Moun­tain stand vast ex­panses of dead trees, burned so badly in the fires that they were un­able to re­gen­er­ate. These ghostly skele­tons of the forests at Lake Moun­tain serve as a per­ma­nent re­minder of what hap­pened here in 2009.
