While the impact of the recent bushfires has been devastating, the display of support from people in Australia and around the world extending the hand of mateship to those affected has been incredibly inspiring.
Many have suffered terribly with the bushfires, including the huge number of people who rely on the tourism industry to support themselves and their families. More than 660,000 people in Australia depend on tourism for their livelihoods – that’s over 5.2% of the nation’s workforce. It’s a long road ahead, but as the world has seen, the optimism in the heart of all Australians will prevail.
