Colour lithographic poster advertising a set of four stamps and associated products issued to celebrate four incredible Australian natural wonders, which are UNESCO World Heritage listed sites. Featured are: Purnululu National Park in Western Australia, an outstanding example containing the major stages in the Earth’s evolutionary history, superlative natural phenomena, and areas of exceptional natural beauty ; Kakadu National Park which is included for its natural and cultural values ; The Gondwana Rainforests a discontinuous rainforest, surrounded by eucalypt forest and agricultural lands, which contains an almost complete record of the major evolution of plant life on Earth ; The Tasmanian Wilderness, a temperate wilderness which contains rocks from almost every geological period and it is recognised as an “International Center for Plant Diversity”. The background image of the poster is of rock pools and bush in Kakadu National Park. Super imposed on this are images of the stamps, and below this images of the boxed roll of stamps and the stamp pack.
