Postcard, Olive Falls, 1920s

A correspondent wrote to the Sydney Morning Herald in 1923 suggesting that Comboyne had unequalled scenic attractions for tourists. ‘No other spot in Australia can offer such a varied panorama to the lover of nature’s beauty. The stately hardwoods, the fragrant brush woods, the graceful palms and ferns, and the myriads of parrots and satin birds all combine to make the Comboyne a veritable fairyland’.
