The forestry show Austimber in Australia has, like many other similar events in the World, had a challenging time the last 18 months. Two times during 2020, the show was postponed due to Covid-19 and the Black Summer Bushfires.
The plan was to go ahead in November this year. Planning and preparation have been going on over the past months. However, a continual worsening of the Covid-19 situation, and government lockdown measures across Australia, have made the situation too unpredictable to go ahead with the show.
According to their home-page, it is not financially feasible or possible to reschedule the show again. The organizers have therefore decided to cancel the show. The message does not reveal any plans for the future.
