Wales Tails

The fun thing about tourism ads is that they get to show the top notch, coolest things about a city or country. New South Wales is no exception showing the variety of sites and scenes. It’s a visual buffet all over the place. Their slogan is a clever word play to appreciate as well: Feel New South Wales.
