Why You Should Visit Australia NOWPhoto Credit: (C) Siwawut / Shutterstock.com
Without a doubt, Australia has been through some very tough times recently. The Bushfires in various regions of the country caused serious damage, as well as loss of lives, property, and wildlife. Australians have been tested like never before. I think the country has shown tremendous resilience in the face of unprecedented challenges.
Having said all of this, we need to put the headlines in perspective. Three facts to keep in mind:
- As of today, all Bushfires have been extinguished.
- 95% of Australia was unaffected by the fires.
- Australia is about to the size of the continental USA, and the total area affected by the Bushfires is roughly the size of the state of Indiana. Most of Australia is as beautiful as ever.
Australia is open for business and ready to welcome travelers. Hotels and lodges throughout the country are offering special rates and promotions for travel in the coming months. Here are two examples: Park Hyatt Sydney is offering a 4th night free Qualia resort in the Great Barrier Reef is offering 4th night free.
