That URL was the page for major incidents last summer.

This summer there is a summary page for major incidents here:

Plus each incident has its own page containing further info.

Personally, I have been very impressed with the CFA site
this year. They have added a lot of extra features and
the site presents a lot more information and is updated
much more frequently than the last few summers. There
are specific write-ups on incidents that wouldn't have
rated a mention on the "major incidents" page last year
with hourly updates when the situation or conditions

It remains to be seen how it handles the load under
pressure of a number of simultaneous major fires.
