Australia world-renowned natural assets include many regions of virtually untouched wilderness. This stamp issue, the second in a series, includes three areas noted for natural beauty and cultural significance.

Judbarra/Gregory National Park, the largest in the Northern Territory, boasts spectacular ranges, gorges, birdlife and rock art, and incorporates the traditional lands of several indigenous peoples.

The Blue Mountain National Park, located west of Sydney, is one of the country’s most frequently visited parks, and includes the Three Sisters rock formation. In 2000 the region was placed on the World Heritage List.

Victoria’s Alpine National Park covers much of the higher areas of the Great Dividing Range, including Mount Bogong, subalpine woodland and the grasslands of the Bogong High Plains.
