There has been some debate about whether the new advertisement for Australia as a tourism destination is offensive or not.

How do we reconcile images like this with the description of the Australian environment as ruin in Jared Diamond’s new best seller, ‘Collapse’, or Ian Lowe’s ‘A big fix: radical solutions for Australia’s environmental crisis’?
