Rose Byrne’s New Tourism Australia Film Has Us Ready to Travel Down Under

Planning your next big getaway? As much as we love a good staycation in Canada,

Planning your next big getaway? As much as we love a good staycation in Canada, we’re ready to explore the spectacular sights and adventures to be found in other corners of the world, too. Answering this call, a new short film from Tourism Australia, starring the voices of Rose Byrne and Will Arnett, has officially sparked our wanderlust for the Land Down Under.

The live-action short film, G’day, features Byrne (who is Australia’s new tourism ambassador) as a CGI-animated souvenir kangaroo, Ruby. Ruby teams up with a toy unicorn (Louie, voiced by Arnett) to explore some of Australia’s most iconic (think: the Sydney Opera House) and unique (see: Uluru Kata-Tjuta National Park) spots.
