Tourism Australia has unveiled a new logo, scrapping the existing version that has been around for eight years. The new-look brand mark, devised by Interbrand has been introduced “to stay relevant and reflect the organisation’s changing culture and identity,” according to the tourism body.

It cost six months and $200,000 to develop. The new logo sticks with the familiar kangaroo symbol, but in simpler form. “The strong use of blues, greens and yellows, and a significantly more contemporary positioning, is in keeping with Tourism Australia’s positioning of a modern and confident Australia open to the world.”
