The Blue Mountains World Heritage Area
21 Nov 2013 | From Don of Australia
This postcard from the official Postcrossing track arrived without a postcard ID code. Luckily, I was able to find the unknown ID with the help of Postcrossing. Good thing the sender wrote a lot of information that helped in finding the ID :)
The blue-hazed beauty of the Blue Mountains World Heritage Area – one million hectares of tall forests, sandstone cliffs, canyons, waterfalls and bushland, is one of the most breathtaking sites in Australia. Spectacular sandstone cliff formation dominate The Blue Mountains World Heritage Area, particularly here within the Grosse Valley.
Don sent this postcard of the Hanging Rock as it shows the natural beauty of the region in which he lives, Springwood. Springwood is the largest village in the Blue Mointains, and is famous for the Grave of Sir Henry Parkes, the Father of Australian Federation; the Corridor Oaks; and the home, studio, and gallery of famous Australian artist, Norman Lindsay (1879~1969).
The Blue Mountain is a National Park and a World Heritage Site. The City of Blue Mountains is a city within a National Park.
