Clever use of NOWra for the postmark of the 'Technology - Then & Now' stamps. If you find hand stamp of this postmark you will be doing well as only 45 are recorded.

Love the FX & FJ Holdens in the cachets.

Shoalhaven Heads is a small rural holiday town. The town sits at the foot of Mount Coolangatta and is situated on both Seven Mile Beach and the mouth of the Shoalhaven River. It is served by the main Bolong Road, which runs from Gerroa to the north, to Bomaderry and Nowra to the south.

It is bounded by national park to the north, the Shoalhaven River to the south and farm land to the west. The town comprises family homes, weekenders and retirement homes. Shoalhaven Heads also has great modern and suburban houses for families, old couples and young couples.

The town has a primary school, rural fire brigade, doctor's surgery and vets. In terms of shopping there are two grocery stores, a post office, a petrol station (which doubles as a video store and grocery shop), a newsagent, two hairdressers, a cafe, a butcher, a bakery, a pharmacy, a pizza shop, a burger shop and a Chinese takeaway. It has one large pub overlooking the river, a sizeable bowls and recreation club which has its own bistro and a golf club adjacent to Seven Mile Beach.

It has an outdoor swimming pool, skate ramp and sports field, along with several boat ramps, numerous play-areas and many excellent barbecue/picnic areas.

Nearby there is the historic Coolangatta Estate which was once the home of the pioneer Alexander Berry. Today Coolangatta Estate is a major tourist attraction. It offers accommodation, a golf course, wine tasting rooms, a restaurant and function rooms.

Australia Post fdc for Australia Day Paintings stamps postmarked Shoalhaven Heads NSW nfdi - 13th January 1994 (APM #26120)

Colleen Woolley of Oz Pictormarks writes that "While the national first day of issue postmark was Shoalhaven Heads NSW 2535, they were processed at Berry PO NSW 2535. The postmark features an artist's impression of a landscape view.

The four stamps in this issue were two paintings by Sir Sidney Nolan (85c & $105) & two by Arthur Boyd (45c & $2.00.)"
