Welcome to #getbackoutthere, a movement for campers, travellers and day-trippers to help regional communities heal and recover from the Australian bushfires.

We’re on a mission to create a network for people to share pics, tips and info from their travels through fire and drought affected regions, to encourage one another to get back out there, safely and supportively.

Whether you’re going on a weekend trip or travelling long term, regional Australia wants you to come see them and help get their message out to the wider travel community. Join us in spreading the word by tagging @getbackoutthereaus while you’re on the road.

Here's how to get involved:

1. Share your experiences. To upload comments and images straight to the app, just click on the + at the bottom of the screen, enter the name of the #getbackoutthere location you’d like to add to (check the map if you’re not sure), and follow the steps to upload your info. 

2. Visit affected areas. We’ve added a #getbackoutthere filter in the app so you can easily browse comments and images other travellers have uploaded to find out what it’s actually like on the ground in fire-affected towns around the country, while you’re on the road. 

3. Follow, share and tag our #getbackoutthere social pages to spread the word!

We’re supporting wildlife rescue in bushfire-affected states

The ongoing bushfire crisis has taken a huge toll on all of us in myriad different ways. It’s hit the holiday parks, regional businesses and communities that we so passionately support, many of our national parks have been razed and our wildlife has been killed on a scale that beggars belief. 

Nature-based travel is close to our hearts — whether that’s an extended camping trip or a brief stop at a lookout on your way down the East Coast. And we believe that, in many ways, it’s our country’s unique wildlife that makes these experiences so treasured by Australians, and by visitors from around the world alike. 

To show our support, we’ll be donating 100% of our booking commissions for January to wildlife rescue in fire-affected states Australia-wide. We hope this goes a small way to help our country along the long road to recovery. If you’d like to lend a hand too, you can donate here:
