While a fierce dust storm raged over the rest of eastern Australia, coastal areas in Queensland were affected by wildfires. The main image shows these fires near the shores, with smoke trailing out over the ocean.

The first close-up gives a more detailed look at the many fires close to the coast, near Rockhampton. The second focuses on a blaze further southeast, near Fraser Island. High temperatures coupled with strong winds have created favorable conditions for fire danger.
