Tasmania's World Heritage Forests

The forests of Southern Tasmania contain the world’s tallest hardwood forests, with trees up to 100m tall. These forests are part of the Unesco World Heritage list since June 2013, inscribed under the name Tasmanian Wilderness.
The Abbott Government have asked the World Heritage Committee to consider removing 74,000ha of Tasmania's World Heritage forests when they meet in Doha in June 2014. The government asked to delist these forests so they can be logged and mined.

Australia Post celebrated the 88th birthday of Queen Elizabeth II with the release of one domestic base-rate (70c) stamp and one international rate ($2.60) stamp.

Thx Steve!
