Although australia's government border was closed on march 20th, international and domestic tourist spending has fallen since january because of bushfires.

In the year to March 2020, the number of visitors and international students in the field of education decreased significantly, and their consumption fell by 15% to A $3.6 billion. In the same period, the international business travel market has also been hit, the annual consumption volume decreased by 15%. The domestic market is also in poor shape, with the number of domestic tourists plummeting by 39 per cent and consumption by 41 per cent, to just A $2.6 billion.

A tour minister Birmingham encourages Australians to "vote with their feet" and take an active part in local tourism. This is important because the international travel market will not return to normal until mid-2021 at the earliest.

As to whether domestic travel can make up for the loss of international travel, many analysts have given a negative answer because of the greater uncertainty in Australian economic, which has led to Australian consumers' doubts about large consumption. In addition, as Australia's new crown has not been lifted, travel may face health risks, Australian tourists have to think twice.

Health risks to Australia are obvious. The border between the new state and the state was closed Tuesday night because of inadequate control of the state's epidemic. Melbourne has been in quarantine for at least six weeks since wednesday night. Moreover, in order to be consistent with government regulations, Qantas (Qantas) had to reduce the daily flights between Sydney and Melbourne from five to two.
