Join presenter Heather Ewart as she heads back to visit some old friends in Mallacoota, on the far eastern tip of Victoria.

On her last visit in 2016, Heather discovered a coastal jewel, with its sparkling lakes and long sandy beaches surrounded by pristine wilderness.

Three years later, on New Year’s Eve 2019, a firestorm engulfed the town destroying more than 120 homes and buildings. The dramatic images of four thousand people seeking refuge on the foreshore under a blood-red sky made worldwide headlines.

Heather catches up with the locals she got to know last time, finding out how they’ve dealt with the impact of the bushfires, then a global pandemic. Will she find a place that still pulls together and refuses to be beaten?

Production credits: Executive Producer: Brigid Donovan. Story Producer, Lisa Whitehead.

Back Roads – Thursday 25 March 8.00pm on ABC and iview
