About Benji

I am married and live on a farm near Margaret River with my wife, daughter and son. I set up The Margaret River Guide to assist people coming to Margaret River Western Australia to easily find what they are looking for. I also wanted to allow people to find activities they did not know about and to be able to openly comment on/ review businesses.

  1. Hi Benji,

    So sorry to hear about this. I hope you are safe and everything goes well. I never knew about this until now. How are the conditions there at the moment?

    Regards,
    Wilson

  2. How scary to have a fire so close to home. You probably know the people on the ‘other side of the hill”??
    My thoughts are with you guys and all others affected by the fires.
    Keep safe and out of harms way.

  7. Hello Benji

    Thanks for putting all these links in one spot for people to access the latest information. Our thoughts are with everyone who is seeking refuge at the moment in the evacuation centres and for those who have heard the devastating news that they have lost their house or have property damage.

    The Volunteer Fire Brigades and FESA have been doing an outstanding job dedicating themselves to protecting the town of Margaret River and for saving and protecting Prevelly.

    We were hit by devastating fires in February which destroyed nearly 80 homes and came very close to our house in February. And unbelievably yesterday while watching the news with the Margaret River fires we had another fire break out on the other side of our hill and they evacuated the local schools. It was quite scary for a few hours! FESA and the volunteers did an amazing job to bring it under control so quickly.

    The hardest thing, but also the most important thing is keeping up to date with the latest information, so this page with the links and twitter updates is very valuable.

    Our thoughts are with everyone across the state as fires threaten lives and homes during this hot period. Be safe, talk and work together as a community.
