Conservation Landholders Tasmania is partnering with Reconciliation Tasmania to present a forum of eminent historians, academics and practitioners in the field of Land Management through Fire from both historical perspectives and modern-day applications.
The recent shocking events on mainland Australia have highlighted and reinforced the urgency of dealing with and planning for the risk of bushfires on our properties.

Fiona Hughes (traditional Welcome to Country)
Jason Thomas (traditional Smoking Ceremony)
Dr Patsy Cameron (setting the scene with her family history on Invasion)
Professor Bill Gammage (author of “The Greatest Estate on Earth”)
