The most significant factors that impact bushfire regions are the vegetation of an area that can provide potential fuel load, the topography of an area due to fire travelling faster uphill, and weather risks since prime bushfire weather is hot, dry and windy.
There is generally a higher risk of bushfires for people residing in rural areas and bushland. Although local weather conditions can affect an area’s risk of bushfire at any time, ACT has a peak bushfire season from late spring through to the start of autumn, when vegetation has dried out and areas that experience strong winds become vulnerable.
Although there have been no large scale bushfires since 2003, ACT is considered a high risk bushfire area due to a landscape of eucalyptus forest, bushland and grassland. Caused by a lightning strike, the 2003 Canberra bushfires severely burnt through 70% of the ACT’s nature land, with nearly 500 buildings destroyed and causing 4 fatalities and 435 injuries.
