Considered a heritage village,
"Fyansford’s old-world charm has been challenged by the developers. In the Geelong Advertiser last December the Council agreed to let the developers go ahead transforming the hillside around the Cement Works (now no longer working but the buildings are still there) into little boxes on the hillside. Meanwhile the little village with a population of about 150 is like Brigadoon, out of time, out of place in the 21st century" So said Peceli & Wendy in their 2010 blog.
