LIVE FROM AUS: the full schedule of events

Travel around and experience Australia from your couch with Tourism Australia's first-ever live program of virtual events.

Get ready for an epic program of live entertainment brought to you over a whole weekend and hosted by some of Australia’s most adored and iconic personalities. 



Live From Aus launches on Tourism Australia's Facebook page at 7 am (AEST) Saturday 16 May and brings you a weekend full of exclusive virtual travel experiences that are sure to ignite your wanderlust.


“The brands that continue to engage with their audiences in a crisis are the ones that tend to recover the fastest.”


“Our marketing job right now is about keeping Australia front of mind for travellers by using this enforced period of self-isolation to engage with people in their living rooms, feed their escapism and inspire them to travel again once the restrictions start to lift.”


“The With Love From Aus campaign is about providing a platform for our industry operators, tourism products and experiences to continue to connect with travel lovers and give them the ideas and inspiration to explore our incredible country when borders reopen, and people can travel again.”


RSVP now to #seeaustralia from your couch and start planning your next Aussie adventure.
