International communities coming together to support bushfire relief

In times of crisis our Aussie spirit shines through. Of the messages, actions and support coming in from across the world, there is one thing true about what people think of Australia and Australians - that we are givers, and that in times of need, we are that mate and friend that steps up and shows up.

We have seen that in times of crisis our Aussie spirit shines through.

Of the messages, actions and support coming in from across the world, there is one thing true about what people think of Australia and Australians - that we are givers, and that in times of need, we are that mate and friend that steps up and shows up.

In our time of need, we are seeing the best of Australia:

  • the brave firefighters;
  • the selfless volunteers;
  • the huge rise of community support;
  • the great Australian sporting and creative names who are giving back to our communities; and
  • countless Australian individuals and groups from across the world stepping up to support the effort.

We are very grateful for the outpouring of support for Australia and the Australian people including the many offers of assistance and donations being made from all around the world to support bushfire recovery.

Our Australian community and international supporters, have already played a key role in supporting affected regions.

We welcome the support from our international student community in helping get the message out that Australia remains open for business, with international visitors welcome.

If you know of any other amazing international students coming together to help out during these times, we’d love to hear from you.
