The last evacuation out of Mallacoota finally went ahead on Tuesday night, with more than 270 people – including about 66 firefighters and 205 evacuees – onboard the HMAS Choules, which will arrive in Hastings about 5pm Wednesday.
There were more registered to take the last chance to evacuate, but some decided to stay.
The group was expected to evacuate by air but dense smoke got in the way.
Seven communities are still isolated in Bellbird Creek, Bemm River, Club Terrace, Combienbar, Genoa, Tamboon and Tamboon South, with the focus today on supplying food and water.
Diesel has been dropped into Mallacoota, Omeo, Corryong, Jarrahmond and Ensay to power their generators with priority for relief centres, hospitals, airports, communications and essential services.
