“A fire burning through the Royal National Park in Sydney’s south has been downgraded to advice status, although thick plumes of smoke are still drifting across the city.”

As we went home by train last night we could see and smell smoke from the fires in the Royal National Park. The guard made an announcement on the train about the fires assuring us that the fires were not near the railway tracks and that it was safe for the train to continue as usual.

So we did arrive home safely.
