The February 2009 Victorian bushfires, also known as the Black Saturday bushfires, were a series of bushfires that ignited or were burning across the Australian state of Victoria on and around Saturday, 7 February 2009 during extreme bushfire-weather conditions (temperatures in the mid to high 40s (Celsius) and wind speeds in excess of 100km/h), resulting in Australia's highest ever loss of life from a bushfire. A total of 173 people are confirmed to have died in the fires with around 500 injured.

The fires destroyed at least 2,029 homes, 3,500 structures in total and damaged thousands more. Many towns north-east of the state capital Melbourne were badly damaged or almost completely destroyed, including Kinglake, Marysville, Narbethong, Strathewen and Flowerdale. Many houses in the towns of Steels Creek, Humevale, Wandong, St. Andrews, Callignee, and Koornalla were also destroyed or damaged, with several fatalities recorded at each location. The fires affected 78 individual townships in total and left an estimated 7,500 people homeless.
