Description

This pin is in great condition for its age.

The pin would probably be of 1970’s vintage as it was part of a lot  from Europe which held other pins from that era.

The 3 stylized kangaroos against the desert backdrop on a pin shaped like Australia really puts the whole scene together.

The only one of its kind we have ever seen so maybe a rarity also.

A must for the Australiana collector or as a gift to a mate overseas.

History

Central Australia / Alice Springs Region is one of the five regions in the Northern Territory. The term Central Australia is used to describe an area centred on Alice Springs in Australia. It is sometimes referred to as Centralia; likewise the people of the area are sometimes called Centralians. The region is located in the southern part of the Northern Territory spanning from the west on Western Australia Border and to the east on the Queensland border.

The main town in Central Australia is Alice Springs, however this area also includes all of the desert lands surrounding it. Whilst a few of these townships (such as Barrow Creek) are stations (ranches), the vast majority of them are indigenous Australian communities. The region covers an area of 546,046 km², which is 40% of the Northern Territory.

The following Local Government Areas (LGAs) make up the region:
