ABSTRACT
The article focuses on how terrorism affects the travel and tourism industry in Australia. The tourism industry of Australia felt its force when the first bomb hit Kuta nightclubs. However, the travelers and tourism industry rallied to the defense where a number of Australian visitors had bounced back to more than 175,000. The national flag carrier of the country needs to show commitment by sustaining a reasonable level of direct flights to the destination.
