Northern Territory, Australia

Postmarked Cairns, dated 12 November 1993.

Top End Northern Territory
The Top End is the common term used to cover the part of the Territory north of Mataranka.  It has a rugged beauty, enhanced by rugged escarpments and spectacular waterways.

This is the most northerly tip of the Northern Territory and is the second most northerly part of Australia.  It is lush, green and tropical, in contrast to the arid region further south.

  1. Hi!

    I was flabbergasted when I saw how many wonderful postcard blogs there are in the blogosphere! I have been stumbling over gorgeous postcard images as I visit blog after blog after blog. My cheeks hurt from smiling! I love finding people with similar interests.

    I am starting a postcard event called Postcard Friendship Friday. I'll put Mister Linky on my blog to keep us all connected. It would be wonderful if you could join, visit, and leave a comment on the other blogs who have joined the event too!

    You don't even have to be a collector to join! There are zillions of postcard images on Flickr to pick from. Vintage, postcrossing, retro, personal travels, kitsch…… the list of postcard types is long!

    I'll see you on Friday


    PS Please comment back if you would like to join!

  2. Sheila, I have always wanted to go to Australia, I think it would be so awesome. I want to go just to see the animals, lol! Have a great day Sheila.


Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
