Travel from home: Brighten up your Zoom background with a trip to Australia.

In this strange new isolation world, we are all living in; chances are you have used Zoom.

Whether you've used it for a work meeting, or like me catch up with friends over a glass of wine, you are not alone.

The video communication platform has become increasingly popular as we find new ways to stay together while pulling apart.

And if you haven't used Zoom's nifty background changer, now is your chance to try it.

Not only does it hide a multitude of household sins, but it brightens up the boring white wall (only clean area of your house that you regularly use), but that might just be me...

Tourism Australia has also jumped on the Zoom bandwagon to help bring a little Australian travel inspiration to users screens.

While it's not advised to travel right now, you can keep dreaming and planning for when it's safe to travel again.

Until then, why not hang with kangaroos on the famous white sandy beach of Lucky Bay in Western Australia or pretend you're in the heart of Australia's Outback - Uluru in the Northern Territory?

These awe-inspiring Australian destinations should be top of anyone's travel bucket list.

From the outback to the coast, to the icons and undiscovered, there's still nothing like Australia.

Travel is proven to be good for your health and wellbeing.

Planning a trip can spark creativity and bring with it positivity about the future.

So, keep dreaming and start planning for when it's safe to travel again and get excited about the vast amount of trips and experiencesyou can have in Australia.

There are 13 Australian virtual backgrounds to choose from.
