The cooler and wetter weather in the Eastern Australian states of New South Wales and Victoria this summer has resulted in a very different bushfire season than the one that led to multiple very large fires a year ago.

Firefighters in Victoria have taken advantage of the conditions to conduct rappel training and complete prescribed fires.
