    Hi Nabbas,
    You will be fine flying into Sydney. Its Victoria that’s got all the bushfires, not New South Wales.As long as your tour is noth headed towards Melbourne you tour should be fine too Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Hi Alex,

    I’m from Melbourne, well actually i live about 30 minutes east of the city. The fires are burning about an 45 mintues east of where i live, so even if you are heading to Melbourne you would be fine. The city is a little smokey today, but once the wind directions changes it will be back to beautiful Melbourne again.
