Australia’s tourism industry has been battered by a series of terrorist attacks in the past few years, and with a high demand for accommodation, a number of businesses have gone out of business.
But this doesn’t mean that the hospitality industry is completely safe.
“I can’t say that I’ve never had a visit from a terrorist, and I’ve had a few in the last couple of years,” said Kathy Coker, owner of Kitchen and Bar, which has been in business since the 1960s.
A terrorist attack could leave many restaurants shut, including in Sydney, where a cafe and a restaurant have been closed for almost three months.”
We’ve got some very good intelligence agencies, and the whole country is pretty safe, so we’ve got to be careful not to let the wrong people into our country.”
A terrorist attack could leave many restaurants shut, including in Sydney, where a cafe and a restaurant have been closed for almost three months.
The owner of the cafe, who wished to remain anonymous, said there had been a lot of disruption to the business.
“We’ve had to lay people off because there was no accommodation available,” she said.
The owner said the cafe was not a regular target of attacks, but was now forced to close due to a shortage of accommodation.””
It’s a very, very stressful time for all of us.”
The owner said the cafe was not a regular target of attacks, but was now forced to close due to a shortage of accommodation.
“The security situation is quite bad, and we don’t have any accommodation for anyone who wants to come here,” she told 7.30.
“It’s not a safe environment for people to come to.
We don’t want people coming in and taking over the place.”
She said the situation was even worse for the staff.
“If we don, it’s going to be really bad,” she explained.
The cafe, located in Sydney’s CBD, has been closed since January after it was forced to turn away customers.””
If you think about how the people in this cafe are living their lives, they’re not going to like that.”
The cafe, located in Sydney’s CBD, has been closed since January after it was forced to turn away customers.
“There are people here who are just desperate to get back to work and they can’t do that, so that’s why they’re looking at other options,” Ms Coker said.
The cafe’s owner is now planning to reopen on July 30.
“That’s a date we can’t guarantee,” she warned.
The Sydney siege has also left businesses struggling to survive.””
When it does, it’ll be a lot better.”
The Sydney siege has also left businesses struggling to survive.
“At the moment, we’re having a hard time in the tourism business because of the siege,” Ms Poucher said.
“People have been trying to get into the city, and some people have been able to get to the airport, but a lot are stuck here.”
