Australia Post as a part of their “Stamp Month” commissioned author John Marsden as well as the highly creative skills of the illustrating team of Mark Jackson and Heather Potter to create ‘The Magic Rainforest’.
A new Australian fantasy book for all generations has fantastical wonderful Australian characters and creatures which together bring the pages of this unique story book and stamps to life.
The mythical creatures featured on the face of these stamps and the roles they were assisgned in the story of ‘The Magic Rainforest’ make a perfectly sensational introduction to the magic of stamp collecting for people of all ages.
The Gondwana Rainforests of Australia formerly known as the Central Eastern Rainforest Reserves, are the most extensive area of subtropical rainforest in the world. The reserve includes 50 separate reserves totalling 3,665 square km, clustered around the New South Wales – Queensland border.
The Gondwana Rainforests are so-named because the fossil record indicates that when Gondwana existed it was covered by rainforests containing the same kinds of species that are living today. Not all Gondwanan rainforests in Australia are located in the New South Wales- Queensland region; the largest Gondwanan rainforest in Australia is located in Tasmania’s Tarkine wilderness. The number of visitors to the Gondwana rainforest reserves in New South Wales and Queensland is about 2 million per year.
