It will be 2 years since Jim Grelis passed away on 7th June 2017. His loss is still felt deeply by family members and friends but he still lives on in our hearts. To honour his memory, join us on one of Jim’s favourite events: The Albert Parkrun, Melbourne.
On 11 May 2019, 41 BSAR members attended a “cold case search for a person who went missing on a bushwalk from Dom Dom saddle in 2008.
BSAR was tasked with line searching in areas that had not been previously searched.
These areas were incredibly dense and scrubby with regrowth from the Black Saturday bushfires. Nothing was found.
BSAR is 70 years old on 6th May 2019.
We don’t know the names or the clubs of the 11 volunteer bushwalkers who left the Russell Street Police Headquarters in 2 trucks early on Friday 6 May 1949 for Port Welshpool. There they boarded a fishing ketch and were landed on the east coast of Wilsons Promontory to join the large search for a missing bushwalker.
