Lancefield open for business
Lancefield’s vibrant winery and B&B businesses are well and truly open for business.
Despite extensive bushfire activity in the area over the past week, Lancefield businesses are waiting with open arms to welcome tourists into the area.
Although the fire isn't out, none of the local attractions has been affected and they are still able to offer a great get away. The wines are chilled and waiting to be tasted.
Emergency services are still active in the area and smoke may be visible, but there is no threat to any community.
Fire trucks will be moving around the area as they continue to mop up and make the area safe ahead of next week's forecast increase in temperatures. There will also be helicopters around helping with the clean-up.
While travelling in the area, drive to the conditions and be aware of the emergency vehicles sharing the road. Tune your radio to ABC 774am or 91.1fm for updated information about the situation.
If you've booked accommodation the locals would love to see you and your family and welcome you to their patch of paradise.
