If you want to support one of the many communities which have been affected by the bushfires, think about visiting them.

Many of these communities have their doors open and rely on tourism but without visitors, small businesses are struggling.

If you’re in Sydney - get out and support these guys. fbwat.ch/1jkSOr90CCcMBf7M

Dear Richard Marles I know this was happing beacuse I was the one that rang 2GB and told Scott Morrison did nothing about what was going on and when he wanted too shack peoples hands they didn't wanna too beacuse one lady on there said until he give back too the Bush fightets and the one who save Australian again were was Scott Morrision on Holiday s

I spent many holidays as a child at the hydro majestic in the blue mountains, the local businesses there are the backbone of the community

Yes businesses are affected by the fires.But why do we have keep talking about money.just for a moment can't we just concentrate on what has happened with the animals. Lives.homes that has been lost. Business will pick up. When the rebuild starts to happen.

You don’t think they’ll be busy enough without a shitload of rubber Becker’s getting underfoot

Many would want to go for holiday or day trip to support those towns caught in Bush fires but first you have to have employment or make enough to be able to afford a break. Many on the land are at breaking point, paying up to a $1000 a meg, for water because they cant get their full allocation, many are just trying to save their plantings, forget about making any profit, where is their helping hand, not from government nor the wineries, they are keeping prices at last year's prices and it was hard then with out the higher cost of water, yep, the lucky country, for some.

Sadly all the fearmongering and paranoia on mainstream media television news has been relentless and the main cause of any downturn in tourism

What about the farmers whose businesses have been struggling for years with drought. Business is always risky.

What, like our politicians did! Did they support Australian communities, even the not-burnt-out ones!

Albanese, Shorten, De Natale, Bandt, and Marles have done nothing to help the Drought or the Bushfire victims. Tony Abbott has been out there with the firefighters, Jim Molam has been out helping the families who have lost their homes as has Morrison, other volunteers have been driving truckloads of hay and water to the affected drought areas. Albanese, Shorten, Di Natale, Bandt, and Marles have just sat in their comfortable clubs sipping Chardonay and criticising the efforts of others, politicising these natural tragedies, and scoffing from the sidelines. They should get off their butts, roll up their sleeves and do something to help.!. Bluddy hypocrites.!

It's alright the reef didn't burn. O . Pollution buy coal dust that doesn't matter we can wash our coal there.

What are you going to do about all our water assets be I g sold overseas ,traitors

only rich LIE-brails can afford

This guy must be a moron there would be an extraordinary amount of accommodation in a burnt out town NO?

Bet your not with your big pay check. Another LIAR THIEF and CHEAT

Your a FUCKWIT bud
