Stamps in this issue

70c Horse-drawn tram Victor Harbor, SA

The lovely coastal city of Victor Harbor on the Fleurieu Peninsula of South Australia hosts the Horse-Drawn Tram, a service first established in 1894. Each of the four trams is hauled by one of a team of eight Clydesdale horses along a 630 metre viaduct or pier.

70c Seaplane, Whitsunday Islands, QLD

Queensland’s spectacular Whitsunday Islands and the Great Barrier Reef can be viewed from the air in popular seaplane tours conducted by Air Whitsunday.

70c Puffing Billy, Dandenong Ranges, VIC

For many years, the early 20th century steam train, Puffing Billy, has been one of Victoria’s favourite attractions. The iconic engine runs on its original mountain track from Belgrave to Gembrook in the temperate forests of the Dandenong Ranges, just outside Melbourne.

70c Boat cruise, Katherine Gorge, NT

Katherine Gorge comprises thirteen gorges carved through ancient sandstone by the Katherine River and is the central attraction of Nitmiluk National Park in the Northern Territory. Canoe and flat-bottomed boat cruises transport tourists as far as the fifth gorge.
