At Travellers Autobarn all our hearts go out to the families and communities affected by bushfires in Australia. It has been a very sad time and it is time for all of us to come together and support our Australian communities.
We encourage all travellers visiting Australia to seek the most up-to-date information on their itinerary and understand which areas are affected and which are open for travel.
Given all the publicity in the media, we have spoken to many customers – both in Australia & overseas – and wish to provide some accurate information about travel around Australia:

Of course, sadly there are some areas that are affected at the moment. All our hearts go out to those affected areas:
Tourism Australia has provided an excellent tool that shows you how each area is affected. Learn more about which areas are impacted and stay up to date on travel conditions here.

Tourism will play a big role in helping bushfire affected communities get back on their feet and Tourism Australia will provide support to regions to welcome visitors back when they are ready. Whilst these resilient communities work hard to achieve this, thousands of small businesses that rely on the tourism industry are still operating across the country and need your continued support. We know people from around the world rely on accurate information from our social media platforms and we will continue to highlight the incredible experiences that are open across the country. You can find updates on how bushfires are affecting some regions in Australia on our website at https://www.australia.com/en/travel-alerts.html
Australia lives from its tourism, its wildlife, its communities – and we all need your help to restore and rebuild our beautiful country. One of the best ways to do so is to travel through Australia – share your amazing holiday photos – and show there is more to Australia than just bushfires at the moment. While you are at it, please donate on the way. It will go a long to help those affected communities and wildlife. We recommend the following donation platforms:
Australia is on everyone’s bucket list, so visit us, have an amazing time, share your adventure with everyone, and help us rebuild the incredible image of Australia!
