CATASTROPHIC bushfires have wreaked havoc across the country this summer, claiming lives and homes, and destroying farmland and national parks.

Amidst the crisis, Prime Minister Scott Morrison and the federal government have copped criticism for their perceived lack of action, their attitude towards climate change and the PM's decision to head to Hawaii on holidays late last year.

Social media has been awash with posts and hashtags calling for his resignation, while vision of people in fire-affected areas refusing to shake his hand has been broadcast on television.

On Monday, Mr Morrison announced a new $2 billion fund to help rebuild towns and farms, and on Wednesday he visited bushfire-ravaged Kangaroo Island.
