Public Transport 

The Bunyip fires are still impacting the Gippsland line with all trains cancelled between Southern Cross and Warragul. Coaches will replace these trains and V/Line suggests allowing an extra 60-90 minutes to your journey and putting off any non-essential travel

A number of bus services across Yinnar, Bunyip, Gembrook, Labertouche, Drouin Dargo, and Rawson-Glenmaggie have also been cancelled for the day.
