NO BODIES have been found in the search of properties burnt in the Tasmanian bushfire disaster.
And authorities say none of the blazes appear to have been deliberately lit.
Police have so far searched 245 properties in the hardest hit town of Dunalley and found no bodies.
About 65 police will continue searching the more densely forested Murdunna and Sommers Bay area.
Ms Gillard arrived at the Tasmania Fire Service Centre at Cambridge, northeast of Hobart, on Monday, flanked by federal MP Dick Adams and frontbencher Julie Collins.
The prime minister will be given a briefing on the bushfires from the southern regional incident controller and other officials.
"It will give me an opportunity to say a very big thanks to people for everything they have done," Ms Gillard said.
She expressed concern for firefighters battling fatigue.
More than 100 buildings have been destroyed by fires, which continue to burn.
