It is clear, that Australia has not just suffered the loss of an immense amount of money where tourism is concerned but has suffered financially in many other areas.
For example, the rebuilding of homes that has been destroyed is going to be a hefty sum, and this coupled with the $1 billion that has already been claimed in insurance payouts means that the country will very likely struggle in the immediate future.
The Australian bush fires were, in every sense, a devastation not only for the country, but for the entire world. Australia has been affected in so many ways as a result of these bush fires but one of the most heart breaking is the damage that has been suffered by the economy which is, no doubt going to take time to heal.
The hospitalization of those who were injured during the bush fires has put enormous strain on the finances of the pubic healthcare system as well as being a huge financial drain on the emergency services.
And of course, we are not to forget the unemployment that has come as a direct result of the fires, with the sheer amount of physical businesses that have been destroyed, many people now find themselves out of work.
This will, of course financially affect the Australian government as more and more people will be applying for welfare.
As far as wildlife is concerned, a huge amount of money is now going to have to be ploughed into research and conservation efforts meaning that further strain on the Australian economy will be evident.
