National Terrorism Threat Level is Probable. This means that, in some places, you can expect to see a higher level of security. These security measures are designed to protect you.
We recommend the following advice for your day-to-day security.
To feel secure in your workplace:
- be familiar with the emergency and evacuation plans
- attend an accredited first aid course
- check garages and underground car parks so you know the vehicles on your premises
- check security cameras to make sure they work properly and keep the recordings
- incorporate our ‘What you do in an attack matters’ training into your standard emergency training.
Major events and transport
Major sporting, music events and other community events are a fun part of our day-to-day life.
There is no reason to stay away from these events, or change the way we travel to and from them.
Australian governments work closely with police and event organisers so the community can enjoy themselves in a safe and secure environment.
International terrorism remains a threat to Australians living and travelling overseas but this should not stop people from travelling for work or holidays where it is safe to do so.
You may see increased security at airports and other transport hubs. Travellers should be mindful of this when making plans.
Before heading overseas, go to the
smartraveller.gov.au website for the latest travel advice.

If your children show concerns about their safety, talk about what is happening and what is being done to protect them. Encourage them to say how they feel.
Be honest about things being discussed in the media and in your community.
If anyone in your family becomes extremely anxious, consult a health professional.
We want to help you feel and be safe.
You may wish to prepare as you would for other emergencies such as a bushfires, floods or cyclones.
