WHEN ACTOR Chris Hemsworth wants to relax on vacation he can think of no better place that the golden beaches of his home country of Australia.
Which make him the ideal choice as Australia’s latest tourism ambassador, that and the fact that the Thor
star looks pretty good in speedos on a beach.
His role as the global ambassador for Tourism Australia’s new campaign was announced today (Friday 15 January). The campaign will focus on the country’s world-class aquatic and coastal experiences.
Hemsworth is a beach boy from way back .“From learning how to surf on Phillip Island, fishing with his brothers in the Northern Territory and family beach holidays, Chris has grown up in Australia in and around water and his own personal experiences bring a truly authentic and influential Australian voice to our campaign,” saysTourism Managing Director John O'Sullivan.
“Chris truly embodies the Australian way of life and his love of his home country, with all its natural beauty, makes him an ideal ambassador”, he says.
'It wasn’t a hard decision to move back to Australia because this part of the world is such a special place. This is the place I want my kids to grow up -- that’s the world I want them to be part of, he says. “I’m really looking forward to launching this new campaign and sharing with the rest of the world just how amazing this country really is'.
