I received two postcards showing Cockatoo Island, Australia, just a few days apart from each other.
Then came the second one from aussiebear. I like how with the two cards, you get a good view of the island and the buildings. Cockatoo Island is one of the 11 sites listed under the Australian Convict Sites UNESCO listing. It was a penal colony from 1839 to 1869. It’s located in Sydney Harbor, not far from 3 of the other sites. Hopefully I will collect all 11 someday.
The senders both used some great stamps, too:
I have so many Australian UNESCO sites to share with you. Aussiebear sent me 8 cards, all with Australian UNESCO sites for my collection! Isn’t that generous? I now have 62 of the sites represented in cards; I’m 7% finished!
