We have some drone footage here. The supplier is unknown and we think it is shot in 2019. If you know who shot the footage, please contact us here so we can give credit to where it's due. Thanks.

We were contacted by John Bylund in August 2021 in relation to the removal, restoration and re-erection of the Munro fire tower to a museum in Collie. The preperations for this are in full swing with approval from DBCA granted. We will keep you updated as more news comes to hand.
