Bailey joins opposition to Smeaton wind farm  

The federal Tourism Minister has joined the fight to stop the proposed Smeaton wind farm going ahead in central Victoria.

Fran Bailey met the opponents in Hepburn Springs last night.

She says wind farms need to be located away from tourism areas and other alternate energy forms like solar need to be considered instead.

“I am very concerned about this and I do join with local residents. I do not think wind farms are appropriate in iconic tourist areas and I think that the Hepburn Springs area is one such area,” she said.
