SYDNEY – Tourism Australia has issued a bushfire update in which the NTO urges visitors to seek the most up-to-date information on the situation on the ground.

“Like all Australians, our hearts go out to the families and communities who are impacted by the bushfires. Our gratitude for the frontline services facing the fires head on cannot be expressed deeply enough,” TA said.

“We encourage all travellers visiting Australia to seek the most up-to-date information for their planned itinerary prior to departure, and remain informed about changing conditions while in Australia.”

Tourism Australia said it is in consultation with State and Territory Tourism Organisations and has created a Bushfire Information page on www.australia.com.

This page contains information about the key tourism regions in Australia that have been affected by the bushfires and general bushfire safety information.

Tourism Australia also advises international travellers to speak with their travel agent, accommodation provider, tourism operators and local Visitor Information Centres for advice about local conditions and how best to experience Australia's tourism destinations.
