This surprise card, one of the most beautiful in my collection, came from Christine from Australia.

Uluru also known as Ayers Rock is a large sandstone rock formation in the southern part of the Northern Territory, central Australia, and is one of Australia’s most recognisable natural landmarks. Kata Tjuta and Uluru are the two major features of the Uluṟu-Kata Tjuṯa National Park. Uluru is sacred to the Anangu, the Aboriginal people of the area. The area around the formation is home to a plethora of springs, waterholes, rock caves and ancient paintings. Uluru is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Uluru is notable for appearing to change colour at different times of the day and year, most notably glowing red at dawn and sunset.
