Description

TMAG presents a special day commemorating the fiftieth anniversary of the 1967 Tasmanian Bushfires. Families can get involved with art and science activities, and curators will be leading tours of One Hell of an Inferno.

Visitors can learn about identifying bushfire hazards and risks, property preparations and what to include in their own bushfire survival plans from the TFS’s Bushfire-Ready Neighbourhoods Program.

Volunteers from the Tasmania Fire Museum will be on hand allowing visitors to get hands-on with real TFS uniforms and trucks, including an authentic 1941 Ford V8 pumper fire truck that saw action on Black Tuesday.

936 ABC Radio Hobart will also present a live broadcast from TMAG between 10:00 am and 12:00 pm on the day.
