In us all being kept aware from reports in the media and that available online, Australia is experiencing catastrophic bush fires in most States. As with many natural disasters, lives, homes, land, livestock and wildlife has been destroyed. On behalf of our owner and all staff at Chateau Yering, our thoughts and much love to all who have been severely impacted. We also take this opportunity to sincerely thank all levels of government and regulatory authority, the CFA and all volunteers involved throughout the country for their incredible commitments to our communities.
While it is natural to feel powerless at such times, the most effective way for you to assist is to continue to travel as planned, or continue to send your clients to visit Australia, and experience the magic of our beautiful country. Many regions in Australia remain safe and continue to welcome visitors. All international airports in Australia are operating as normal.
History talks to our region’s impact of disasters. Fortunately, at this stage we understand Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges is not impacted and we remain vigilant in continued awareness and update of changing circumstance. Our accommodation and gardens remain available daily and Sweetwater Cafe open 7 days for breakfast and lunch and Eleonore’s open 7 days for dinner.
Please circulate widely through your networks. For an update on areas affected by the fires, go to the following link:
