Hundreds of firefighters are working to carry over 130 bushfires ravaging Queensland and New South Wales, as the Queensland premier cuts short her Europe trip to return home.
Over 400 people were in evacuation centres on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast as a blaze still burns out of control at Peregian Beach and Peregian Breeze Estate. One property has been destroyed in the area.
On Tuesday afternoon, a Boeing 737 dumped 15,000 litres of fire retardant onto the Peregian fire.
