With the premiere of the new Baz Luhrmann film Australia having taken place in Sydney yesterday (November 18th), now could be an ideal time to book holidays to Australia to see some of the films panoramas first-hand.

Tourism site Australia.com suggests a number of activities that allow travellers to follow in the footsteps of Nicole Kidman – who plays an English woman who has to drive her cattle 1,500 miles across Australia in order to sell them – and Hugh Jackman.

The list includes dining at the remote bushcamp of Faraway Bay, where the film’s crew stayed to shoot footage of the King George River, as well as sleeping under the stars in the Outback near Sydney as Luhrmann did.

Tourism Australia managing director Geoff Buckley recently told the Telegraph that the film will “put the country in the spotlight around the globe”.

Indeed, it is enjoying a wide publicity campaign in the UK, where it will premiere on December 26th.
