 This is a fine print reproduction of a vintage travel poster promoting tourism to Australia.  This poster was made for the Australia National Tourist Association and features a variety of parrots in the foreground including the King Parrot, Eastern Rosella, Major Mitchell Cockatoos and a Sulfur-Crested Cockatoo.  A young couple gazes at flocks of parrots in the background.

James Northfield (1887–1973) was an Australian graphic artist active from the 1910s through to the 1960s. He illustrated many commercial and government advertisements which depict Australian scenery, wildlife and daily life and also demonstrate the priorities of the government of the day.
Northfield is best known as the designer of a series of posters for the Australian National Travel Association, who commissioned him, alongside Percy Trompf, Walter Jardine, Eileen Mayo, Gert Sellheim and C. Dudley Wood to promote Australian holiday destinations to local and overseas travelers.
