AUSTRALIAN BUSH FIRES
Our thoughts are with all those impacted by the horrific bush fires happening all over Australia and the men and women who are working extremely hard to fight them. At this stage it is too early for us to be contacting businesses in the areas affected to check arrangements as many are just too busy with their own personal situations. However, we will be able to do this soon and for those booked on tours that could possibly be affected we will be letting you know as soon as we can.
We are ready to re-route sections for any of our tours if need be to ensure your safety and for the safe operation of any tour that is currently planned to pass through any effected areas. The tourism industry is a very important part in the recovery following a disaster. Everyone is asking how can we help? Continuing to travel to these areas once it is safe to do so and spending money with the local business’s will be the most useful help anyone can give. Travelling back to these towns once this national disaster is behind us will be an important part of the recovery for these affected regions. We are very keen to support the local tourism industries and the local economies to help them rebuild. If you are booked on a tour that requires a change in itinerary, we will contact you by phone and / or email well prior to your departure date to inform you of this.
You can be assured that Potter Travel will not operate a tour that in any way puts you in danger.
