UNESCO Fraser Island Postcards for Swapping


Historical Description
In 1860 Fraser Island was gazetted as an Aboriginal reserve. The reserve was largely revoked two years later following the discovery of valuable stands of timber. The remnant Aboriginal reserve was revoked in 1906, after the Aborigines were removed from Fraser Island. In 1908 the central part of Fraser Island was declared a forestry reserve, and by 1925 most of the island had been set aside as state forest. Fraser Island (Great Sandy National Park) (74,900ha), was gazetted in 1971.
The remainder of Fraser Island consists predominantly of vacant Crown land of 78,404ha in public ownership, which has been proposed as a National Park extension subject to resolution of Aboriginal Land interests. Parts of this have been effectively managed for conservation purposes, and prior to the Commission of Inquiry had been proposed for "preservation zoning" (DASET, 1991; A.Turner, pers.comm., 1992).
The Fraser Island (Great Sandy Region) was accepted as a natural World Heritage Site in 1992, on the basis of criteria (ii) and ( iii ).
Legislation is proposed to cover the whole area nominated, as a regional park (DASET, 1991).

These are UNESCO site Fraser Island postcards for swapping.

Interesting Reading - Message in a Bottle Harold Hackett

Colourful ideas on letter writing by Rin Dawson

Yummy homemade fast Quiche and Banana and Walnut cake from Down To Earth

Finally a movie made from one of my favourite mountaineering books of Everest ' Into Thin Air'

Harold Hackett has made Message in a Bottle so interesting in this modern technology age. His birthday is in August so he gets lots of birthday messages

WOYWW 325 Stamp Camp Report

As many of you know, I went to Stamp Camp a couple of weeks ago, I think I am still on a high as it was my first stamp camp in Australia. I already knew a few of the ladies via online craft groups so it was good to put faces and personalities to emails and names.

We had a ball, ate too much, on the last day we all couldn't eat the morning or afternoon tea provided, I think we were full up with crafting to let any food in LOL.

Each time we went for a meal there would be a present on our chair when we came back.
 This was one of the meals, the salads were so yummy, and then there was the fruit platter below, i have never eaten so much healthy food in one weekend, needless to say on Monday I put on my work uniform and the pants fell off me LOL and I forgot to wear a belt with it.
 So there you go eating good food loses weight, below is my plate, cant remember if it was lunch or dinner. We got fish one meal and then i cant remember the rest and forgot to take photos of all the meals. I signed up for next year so will definitely take more photos of food
 So when we got to the venue this is what greeted us, all the gifts and instructions set up
 This was my place, the library card had a lucky number and the name of a book in it.

 This is my cheeky table mate Karen holding up her grubby rabbit fingers behind my head unbeknownst to me
Me outside decorating my book and drying it in the sun, 
it was a very messy lesson we had with Sue Smyth

My other table mates Kay, Doreen and I cant remember the other ladies name-she wasnt on our table


  Ladies also had show and tell, this is one of the books, check out the spine work

 Another book, I think these books were made by Jenny Webster, she is a wonderful crafter
More stamp camp photos next week!!!
I have been working on the dining table upstairs, and its full of letter writing stuff I am catching up on for Postcrossing.com 

Sorry Julia that is abit photo heavy but its all crafting stuff....and foooood!!! The white binder to the left has instructions on who to write to and whom wrote to me and their letters. Postcards coming and going, letter half written, phone (must have just answered it and put it right down there in the middle of a letter LOL). Water and more water. 

Joining Julia's Stamping Ground for more views of craftiness around the world.

 I tested 2 teas as well, Shimmer punch and I cant remember what the name of the bottom one is called. I liked the Shimmer punch better
