Disaster relief and recovery

Australian Bushfire Donation Fund

 

As you’re aware, Australia is currently in a state of crisis with an unprecedented number of fires across the country. 

 

People and animals have died, hundreds are without homes and thousands look on with grave uncertainty as the fires show no sign of easing up.

 

As tourists with fond memories, we know that Australia has a special place in many of your hearts.

 

The travel industry is a tight-knit community and we'd like to contribute by inviting you to get involved in this country-wide effort to raise funds for a good cause.

 

As businesses we will also be donating so that we can try to reach our goal of $250,000. 

 

Thank you so much for your thoughts prayers and of course donations. Please share this page with your friends and family.

 

Much love, the Australian Tourism Industry.

Thank you to my Sponsors
