On October 4, 2016 in Glenrowan, Victoria, Australia, after heavy storms hit Australia, this caravan park owner decided to cut down a precariously placed gum tree hovering over two of his cabins.

After watching on, guests at the park began to worry that the tree wasn’t going to fall where the caravan park owner wanted it to, with one of them even prophetically commenting, “It’s gonna hit the two cabins I reckon”.



“My husband and I were staying in a cabin. After a storm passed, we found the park owner inspecting a fallen tree which had narrowly missed the park’s huge LPG tank. He set about chopping it up with his chainsaw. John had a look and agreed that it was a dangerous situation, he got ready to move our vehicle. The outreaching branches of the tree smashed down through our cabin bathroom. The only thing out of place though was my shower gel which had been knocked to the floor.”

Goodness, but luckily for the ones staying in the cabin “The park owners immediately offered us another cabin and we moved all our gear out of the broken cabin into the new upgraded one.”
