Bushfires & Evacuating Camels (Welcome to 2020)

If you’ve been following us on social between December and January you’ll have seen that we were in the disaster zone of the East Gippsland Fires. East Gippsland, Lakes Entrance to be exact, is the area where we live with our family – camels included. 


Usually summer will see us operating our other business – Lakes Entrance Camel Rides – and seeing thousands of visitors visit our region to experience all it has to offer. 


But, Mother Nature had other plans.

We wanted to do this podcast for our loyal listeners as we’ve been a bit MIA and promo we’d start the podcast again after a short break over the Christmas period.


We appreciate this Camel Connection community so much and we know how concerned many of you were for us – showing your support and love.


We chat about what it was/is like (thus far) experiencing these out of control fires in East Gippsland, what it’s done to our region, how we evacuated three times (twice with camels, once, sadly we had to leave them behind) and what the future might look like.
