Postcard from Australia

A lovely postcard received on 16 March 2009 from Australia (unfortunately, the post office did not cancel the stamp), showing a view of the Mungo National Park in New South Wales, a part of the Willadra Lakes Region, UNESCO World Heritage Site, incorporating 17 dry lakes and containing the remains of Mungo Man, the oldest human remains discovered in Australia, and Mungo Lady, the oldest known human to have been ritually cremated.

The fine photographic stamp of 1.35 AUD was issued on 3 March 2009 and shows the Grose River Gorge in New South Wales, from the International-post-only series Fabulous Australia.

Thank you, Alison!
