A national tourism campaign designed to stop people in their tracks.
Create an unmissable national tourism campaign for South Australia which reflects the energy of our state in 2023 and leaves our audience with a clear call to action.
2023 was a massive year for South Australia. From record-breaking tourism levels to world-first events choosing SA as home – our State has been bursting with a new-found energy and confidence and the world took notice.
So when the State Government and SATC commissioned Fuller to create a 12-month tourism campaign designed to stop people in their tracks it was clear it needed to showcase South Australia in all its rugged glory while reflecting the energy the State had become known for.
In response, Fuller developed Travel. Our Way. A national tourism campaign that leant on Lenny Kravitz’ iconic track Are You Gonna Go My Way and showcased key experiences in an authentic, unapologetic way.

The campaign was designed to set a new attitude for South Australia; to create pride intrastate and to get attention interstate.
Launched just prior to the first bounce at the AFL Grand Final, Travel. Our Way. hit the airwaves in a big way leaving tourists with a bold challenge: travel the usual way or Travel. Our Way.
Our target audiences were challenged to pack their ‘up for anything’ attitude and venture South for some seriously real, raw and refreshingly rugged experiences.
Fuller took a strategic risk with the underlying core insight for Travel. Our Way. – we acknowledged proudly that South Australia was ‘not a holiday’.
We leant into consumer insights which showed travellers were looking for a change to the status quo when it came to their holidays; they were wanting to pursue outdoorsy, adventurous experiences and immerse themselves in a destination. And lucky for us, South Australia offered all these things and more.
So we created a new way of travelling. A way that is so much better than simply taking a holiday. So much more than what’s expected. And so much more than what’s been instagrammed a million times.
We set out to challenge people to reconsider their ‘usual’ holidays which saw them head to the eastern states. We wanted to offer an antidote to the typical, plastic, picture-perfect holidays that have become all too common.
We decided to base our entire campaign on the fact that South Australia is real, raw, rugged and ready to own it.
We focussed on showcasing South Australian experiences in ways that are less typical than what would be expected from a tourism spot.
Our visual aesthetic was replicated in our photography, allowing our main characters' journeys to be shared further in OOH, digital and social platforms.
To create something truly special we engaged award-winning Hollywood director and South Australian resident Mark Webber and renowned Australian cinematographer Katie Milwright to create a cinematic journey across South Australia which showcased the raw and real moments.
From heli camping in the ancient Flinders Ranges to shark cage diving, a pit stop at a luxurious outback pub and so much more - Travel. Our Way. delivered a human-centric spot designed to appeal to those looking to simply let go, get dirty and see some truly incredible places.
The campaign launched Grand Final weekend achieving 1.3M impressions.
