Pictures: Australia’s most deadly and destructive bushfires

a red fire engine is parked in the grass: Wildfires have ravaged the Australian landscape since time immemorial, and while these blazes can be a natural part of the nation's ecology, they often result in devastating loss of life and serious injuries, as well as damage to property and swathes of farmland. Worryingly, experts warn that climate change is turning parts of the country into a tinderbox, exacerbating bushfire risk. As multiple infernos rage through the east coast, we take a look back in time at the most catastrophic conflagrations ever.

At Microsoft News Australia we've partnered with the giving platform Benevity to raise funds for Australian Red Cross, St Vincent De Paul Society and The Salvation Army; these organisations are helping communities across the country devastated by bushfires.
