These are questions asked by ten thousand international tourists, the travel and tourism industry. Welcome to tourism during forest fires.

Forest fires in Australia are also in a deadly attack against the country’s travel and tourism infrastructure. The worst forest fires that have been seen in decades are causing global travel alerts and death on the one hand. On the other hand, a vibrant tourism industry ready to welcome you and show you the best moment in the Australian continent.

Most destinations in Australia remain safe and continue to receive visitors. All international airports in Australia are operating normally.

A responsible trip to Australia is the answer to why visiting Australia has never been so important. SKAL International Australia President Alfred Merse shared with other members around the world.

Skål is a professional organization of tourism leaders from around the world, which promotes global tourism and friendship. It is the only international group that unites all branches of the travel and tourism industry.

Its members, managers and industry executives meet at the local, national, regional and international levels to discuss and seek issues of common interest.

Skål International today has approximately 15,000 members in more than 350 clubs in 83 nations.

His message: “As with natural disasters, lives have been lost, homes, businesses and many properties and wildlife have been destroyed. The livelihoods of many have been severely affected. ”

“The widespread publicity both in Australia and worldwide will certainly have an impact on our travel and tourism industries and that will directly affect many of our Skal members.”

We recommend that all travelers visiting Australia look for the most up-to-date information for their planned itinerary before departure, and stay informed about changing conditions while in Australia.
