The beauty and grandeur of the Grampians are captured in this tourism poster by famous Australian graphics artist James Northfield.


Two people gather wildflowers in the shadow of a rocky escapement. Australian gums grow at the base and off into the distance the vastness of the mountain ranges is depicted. 


This poster is from a series of travel posters commissioned by the Australian National Travel Association and have since become collector's items.


James Northfield is one of Australia's most popular graphic artists from the 1930s, 1940s and beyond. His love for Australian flora and fauna is evident in this work.
