Australian Bushfire Statement
Updated: 15 January 2020
In Brisbane, we are shocked and saddened by the devastating impact of bushfires on communities across Australia. We acknowledge the resilience and hard work required of those in affected areas, particularly those fighting the fires and the charities supporting families and wildlife impacted by the bushfires.
While Brisbane is unaffected by these fires, we know that rebuild and recovery are vital to our industry. We encourage travellers to keep visiting and to support local and regional businesses.
We encourage our industry partners to directly contact trade partners and international clients to advise them that Brisbane has not been affected by recent fires and is operating as usual.
Tourism Australia has established a resource that shows which tourism areas have been affected by bushfires to ensure that industry and travellers have the most accurate and up-to-date information. We encourage you to share this resource with your partners to ensure the latest facts about the fires are well understood.
