Bushfire Support

​​​​​​​Our region has faced the full extremes of Mother Nature in recent months. From drought, to fire, and now to some welcome rain.

Primary producers still grappling with the aftermath of bushfires may be eligible for government help.

This assistance may include freight subsidies for fodder, fencing materials, livestock and concessional rate loans.

For more information about funding, visit the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries​ to check if you are eligible for a Financial Assistance Package which have been made available under Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA). 

Other support may be available by calling Vinnies on 1800 846 643​.

National Bushfire Recovery Agency

​The NBRA are focused on connecting people, communities, primary producers and businesses with the services and assistance they may need to rebuild and recover to support the recovery of all Australians.

The following are lists of national support options collated by the NRBA:
