Tourism Australia recently launched a new app that makes it easier for tourists to take vacation selfies. While many tourists have turned to selfie sticks in order to take the perfect shot, this app provides an easier way to capture vacation memories.

The new app is part of a campaign called 'GIGA Selfie.' Visitors can use the app by standing on a designated platform at different locales across Australia. Each platform indicates where the user must stand and how to position their phone in order to snap the perfect vacation selfie. The app can then stitch together photos from the surrounding area to provide users with a video of themselves and the gorgeous landscape.

The campaign demonstrates one of the unique ways that countries are using social media to promote tourism and enhance the visitor experience.
