Australia – January 29th, 2013

Several fires can be seen blazing in Queensland, Australia. Here, the largest is located just north of the Great Basalt Wall National Park, 1124 km northwest of Brisbane. This national park protects 35,200 ha of land containing the Great Basalt Wall, a geological formation of the Toomba basalt flow. The plume of smoke from the fire blows northward, while that of the second largest fire, visible to the east, is being carried eastward.
