Tourism Australia Bushfire Statement

Jan 04, 2020

3 January 2020

“Like all Australians our sympathies go out to the families and communities who are impacted by the fires, and our gratitude grows stronger by the day for the front line services facing the fires head on.

“Whilst bushfires continue to impact parts of Australia, many areas are unaffected and most tourism businesses are still open. 

“It is more important than ever that we rally around our communities and the tourism sector who may have been impacted.

“We would encourage all travellers coming to Australia to seek the most up to date information prior to departure, and remain informed about changing conditions whilst on the ground.

“The Australian Government’s Bureau of Meteorology provides overall weather updates for all parts of Australia, including the latest fire warnings: www.bom.gov.au.

“For specific advice, updates are available from the Rural Fire Service, National Parks and relevant State or Territory emergency services.

“Travellers are also encouraged to speak with local tourism operators and staff at local Visitor Information Centres for advice about local conditions and how best to enjoy their time in Australia.”

Phillipa Harrison, Managing Director, Tourism Australia
