‘When you can travel again, make sure you get out and support those communities who rely on tourism and are having a particularly tough time,’ the Thor star added.

Holiday travel across Australia has been halted as the nation continues to battle a Covid-19 outbreak. 

It’s not the first time Chris has promoted Australia, after he famously fronted Tourism Australia’s campaign as the official ambassador for the nation in 2018.

He starred in a Crocodile Dundee-inspired commercial with fellow Aussies Margot Robbie, Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Isla Fisher, and American comedian Danny McBride as Dundee’s long lost son.

The ad was aired to 110 million U.S. Super Bowl viewers back in 2018.

As a result, there was a surge in NSW tourism with over 4.4million foreign visitors in 2019, and brought in $6billion to the Australian economy at the time.
