A BABY wombat called George and a photobombing butterfly have proven even more effective than a bare-chested Thor in promoting Australia to the world.

The social media posts from the Australian Reptile Park and Symbio Wildlife Park were judged by Tourism Australia and Qantas to be the best promotion for the country in the past year.

In recognition of their global appeal, the videos and the Margaret River Discovery Company’s stunning Sunset Kangaroos photo will take centre stage at this month’s major tourism and trade event G’Day USA.

A who’s who of Australian A-listers are expected to attend the gala dinner on January 28 including Hugh Jackman, Ben Mendelsohn, Rachel Griffiths and Foreign Minister Julie Bishop.
