With recent news on bushfires all over Australia I thought it was time I shared one of the best websites I visit for information on bushfires.

Geoscience Australia is a great bushfire tracking service that allows visitors to get a good idea on the location and stage of a bushfire outbreak with surprising accuracy. If you want to keep watch over large bushfires then this is the website for you. Just bookmark http://sentinel.ga.gov.au/acres/sentinel/index.shtml to keep an eye on hotspots over the last 12 to 24 hours.
