Following the recent rain on the firegrounds, local authorities have now declared the Southern Highlands " Open for Business " and that means encouraging more tourists back to the region.

The decision has been made by NSW Police, the Rural Fire Service, Transport for NSW and council.

However we have been told the rain wasn't enough to completely douse any small pockets of fire and plenty of mopping up will take place over the coming weeks to get on top of any remaining hot spots.

RFS Inspector David Stimson is also asking people to show respect when they visit fire affected areas.
