2009 Walla Walla Bushfire

On 17 December 2009, more than 17,000 acres of farmland between Glenellen and Gerogery, north of Albury in New South Wales, was burnt when a bushfire broke out at a council rubbish tip site in Walla Walla.

The fire destroyed five local homes and damaged another four, killed over a thousand sheep and more than 100 cattle, and decimated sheds, vehicles, fencing and local crops.
