Travel bans sparked by the coronavirus outbreak are already having savage economic consequences for far north Queensland's tourism industry.

A Queensland tourism boss is demanding an unprecedented response to help the industry survive the savage effects of Australia's bushfire crisis and coronavirus travel bans.

The figures are a tally of losses recorded by Tourism Tropical North Queensland's 400 industry members.And that's just one region of tourism-dependent Queensland. In the meantime, it's pushing on with a campaign to get Queenslanders to holiday in the region, something that will dovetail into Tourism Australia's 'Holiday Here This Year' campaign, sparked by the bushfire crisis.

It's about time to reorganise our thinking - betting on China's huge market might not be sustainable with a totalitarium regime. Australia might end up loosing the country. Start developing local tourism attractions. Climate Change also encourages more land travels.

If only we had saved $100m for helping tourism rather than sports rorts

yeah but the wildlife and environment is breathing a sigh of relief!!

This self-isolation is crap. What if people don't self-isolate? we could end up with thousands of infected people roaming the streets
