We've captured the aftermath of a minor but impactful landslide on the Genoa-Mallacoota Road that occurred on 30th November 2023. This incident, though small in scale, caused a significant disruption, blocking the road for a full day and affecting locals, holidaymakers, and workers alike.

Our drone footage provides a unique perspective of the road post-clearance, offering a visual narrative of the event and its resolution. The landslide, caused by a fallen tree, was a stark reminder of the unpredictability of nature and the challenges it can pose to our daily lives. Thankfully, by the 1st of December, the road was cleared, reinstating vital connectivity for the community.
