Iconic Australian Song Licensed for Australia Advert

The song is associated with Australia around the world, particularly in America, but Davies has never allowed people to use it before, turning down offers of millions of dollars. That was until now, when he has allowed Tourism Australia to make use of the song for free in an advert promoting the country. It’s in part to celebrate the song’s thirtieth anniversary, but it should also make for an effective campaign to draw more people to the Great Southern Land. The song was written by Davies whilst he was missing his homeland on a tour of Europe and America with Icehouse. If you want to discover the wonderful landscapes, exciting cities, diverse habitats and wealth of activities you can get up to down under, our Australia tours are the perfect way to do just that.
