Rome2rio is a global company, but we’re also proudly Australian. Since November 2019, our country has been burning. The nation has been ravaged by the most devastating bushfire season the country has ever seen.
There were hundreds of bushfires raging in NSW, Victoria and South Australia in particular. Many lives were lost, as well as thousands of homes and hundreds of thousands of native Australian animals.
However, we as a country are still open for business. Tourism is still well and truly spectacular in many parts of Australia (including areas directly impacted by the bushfires). While there’s still the ability to donate to help the country recover, there are many opportunities to visit the beautiful places in Australia that still showcase its wild diversity and beauty.
Places in Australia that were hit hard during the crisis, or nearby, would love to have you visit and spend time exploring and travelling. Here are some easy links to discover how to get there:
- Kangaroo Island – South Australia
- Bright – Victoria
- Jervis Bay – NSW
- Mallacoota – Victoria
- Bermagui – NSW
- Kangaroo Valley – NSW
- Blue Mountains – NSW
- Bairnsdale – Victoria
If you are able, we’d love to have you help! Donations can still be made to the following appeals:
- National Bushfire Disaster Appeal
- Australian Red Cross
- Victoria Bushfire Disaster Appeal
- Victorian CFA
- NSW RFS
- WIRES Wildlife Rescue
- Zoos Victoria
- Wildlife Victoria
Thanks for your support during this difficult time!
The Rome2rio team.
