Organisers of four-day music event Falls Festival have announced that it has been relocated to Mount Duneed Estate.

Catastrophic bushfires along Victoria's Great Ocean Road have destroyed 116 homes in the towns of Wye River and Separation Creek. The nearby town of Lorne, where the festival is usually held, was issued with an evacuation warning. "We have been working closely with the local emergency services, councils and CFA and unfortunately the Lorne farm is a potential high risk site for the 2015 event," the organisers of the festival said.
