It also left Rachael's husband and the girls' father, Matt, hospitilised for months fighting third-degree burns to 40% of his body.
On the Matt Golinski Tribute Page on Facebook, dozens have left messages of encouragement to Matt and to remember the girls.
Jacqui Trewin wrote "Thinking of you Matt during this time of year and hoping with all my heart you receive all the love and support you so deserve. You inspire so many and are love by many, too."
Susan La Roche said Matt's strength and dignity in the face of such tragedy was inspirational.
"I have seen you around the hospital and your beaming smile and beautiful personality shine like a beautiful star."

I couldn't even imagine what you have been through this past year Matt, but you have fought your way through, your a fighter and a true inspiration, my heart goes out to you and wish you all the best at this time xx Kelli Rossow
Matt my thoughts were with you yesterday and also as I woke this morning. You have had a hard year but come out strong and you are an inspiration to everyone that knows you. I hope 2013 is good to you. Sarah Haycocks
Stay strong on a day like today. You are a true inspiration to me mate and too many around the world. Your four precious angels would be looking down on you today and be very proud of you and what u have since done. Stay strong, your a survivor. Mel N Timmy
Matt - I saw you in the cooking shop today at Noosa - I was overwhelmed as I have been hoping our paths would cross. I wish I had the nerve to say 'Merry Christmas'. I can only imagine how much you are loved by numerous family and friends. I hope that tomorrow is a good day for you & your family. Nicole Lush
All I can say is that your angels are looking down upon you tonight and every night yes they would want you to fight the fight. I believe they are sitting on fluffy clouds swinging their legs back and forth not a care in the world watching their daddy surf the surf and just getting out their and making the most of what life has to offer. I must say I am personally so very proud of you and you are a bright star in my eyes. I know that when I bake it takes me to another world it's just me, the oven, the smells and I'm just totally lost in my own little world. Just love to see you happy. Monica Bardini
