Before the pandemic struck, people would visit a destination and perhaps buy a few postcards for keepsakes. Now, while we can get our hands on plenty of postcards online, we can’t visit the destination – in a strange reversal. Why not “jump” into postcard-worthy images and make them video chat backgrounds, as we look forward to the days when travel restrictions are eased?

Destination New South Wales has put together a suite of gorgeous images based on the themes of native animals and spectacular scenery. A short getaway to nearby Australia during its current winter months is not possible now, but the following sample of postcard-worthy images may just be a creative way to scratch that itch.

There are even video backgrounds for better virtual immersion in Australia. For more images and videos, click here.
