Fire on the Plateau: The history of fire and its management in Stanley by Jacqui Durrant

Commendation – Victorian Community History Awards 2020

In 2003 and 2009, the Stanley Plateau was subject to catastrophic bushfires. This project looks at the changing fire history of the Stanley Plateau from Aboriginal fire management through to European settlers and their responses to bushfire, right up to the aftermath of the 2009 fires. 


Work on this project commenced in February 2019. The outcome included text for a museum-style exhibition held at the Stanley Athenaeum, curated by Ali Rowe, as well as an illustrated book, Fire on the Plateau — A History of Fire and its Management in Stanley, published by the Stanley Athenaeum. The project was partnered by Stanley Landcare, and was funded by the Into Our Hands Community Foundation, and the Victorian State Government.
