This print promoted Marysville as a tourist destination in the 1930's.  Percy Trompf  studied at the Ballarat Technical Art School before moving to Melbourne in 1923. The Australian landscape and wildlife influenced his work. Trompf's vibrant coloured posters were famous in Australia and his work became well known in Britain and North America.
