Summary From the agonies of droughts and floods to the shocks of earthquakes and bush fires, Australia is a country famed as much for its ferocious natural hazards as for its rich environment. Australia's Natural Disasters is a fascinating chronicle of the ferocity of nature and the dramatic effects it has had on this country and its people from the mid-1800s to the seemingly more frequent extreme-weather events of the 2000s. Disasters covered include the bushfires of 2019 and 2020, Cyclone Yasi and Cyclone Tracy, The Black Saturday 2009 Bushfires and the devastation along with the Queensland Floods and the 2021 Floods, the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race, the mass rescue at Bondi Beach, Dust Storms of 2009 and the devastating hail storm that struck Sydney's East and much more.
