The travel posters of the post-war era were an integral part of Australia’s early 20th century tourism promotion, both internationally and domestically. Between the 1930s and the 1960s, ANTA, as well as State Government tourism organizations, airlines, railways, and other tourism operators, used travel posters as part of their strategy to sell Australia to the world.
