Baz Luhrmann’s latest movie, Australia, has created a huge buzz around the country’s tourist offerings, it has been claimed.

According to Tourism Australia, the film – which stars Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman and is set just before World War II – has resulted in a significant increase in publicity for holidays to Australia.

More than 100 million people around the world have already heard about the movie thanks to mentions of the film in the press, the organisation said.

“We want more people to feel inspired about what an Australian holiday has to offer – whether it’s in the outback, by the coast or in the cities,” commented Geoff Buckley, managing director of Tourism Australia.

The movie sees the characters played by Kidman and Jackman make a journey of hundreds of miles across Australian terrain, giving viewers a taste of the scenery that the country has to offer.

It opens in the UK on December 26th and launched at cinemas in Australia and the US earlier this week.
