Poster advertising TEAL flights to New Zealand, and one highlight of a New Zealand visit, the Waitomo Caves. Shows an illustration of a family in a small boat in the caves, one man standing in the bow pointing to the stalactites and to a Maori tiki figure, possibly a glowworm with a candle and nightcap. One oval part of the image is in dark blue suggesting the cave interior.

Artist is possibly Nobby Clark, who worked on the TEAL account for Haythorn-Thwaite, and for Carlton Carruthers du Chateau. Other possible artists are Linwood Lipanovic and Arthur Thompson who also worked on the TEAL account at Carlton Carruthers (see http://www.nzda.ac.nz/graphic/designers/nobby )
