Cover From Australia

This time, I would like to showcase a beautiful cover I got from Australia in April 2010. I simply love the clear postmark. Though the cover is over-paid, its hard to resist covers like this. Its just a beauty.

A little info on the cover:

The stamp and cover depicts the Sydney Royal Easter Show. The 2010 Sydney Royal Easter Show took place at Sydney Showground from April 1 to 14. Held by the Royal Agricultural Society of New South Wales each year at Easter time, the Sydney Royal Easter Show is more than a farm fair.

Certainly it has massive displays of Australian farm produce and the biggest and best of them, and they are very much a sight to behold. But, more than this, the Sydney Royal Easter Show is an annual extravaganza including some of the latest and most heart-stopping carnival rides, rodeo events, motorcycle and skateboarding stunts, livestock races, woodchopping competitions, diving (if not flying) pigs, a variety of parades, fashion shows, food stalls of various kinds, and a showcase of new and popular products.
