Notes: Kanangra-Boyd National Park is a 169,700 acre (68,660 hectare) park in New South Wales, Australia, about 110 miles (180 km) southwest of Sydney.  The park features mountains, spires, karst (cave) formations, one of Australia's deepest gorges and three waterfalls systems.  It also has cliffs known as the Kanangra Walls, shown here.  I wasn't able to figure out how tall this cliff is, but just by looking at it, I think it is safe to say that falling off of it would be hazardous to your health.

Notes: According to the back of the card, this is the Catholic Church of St. Anthony of Padua in Pastavy, Belarus.  That is almost more information than the entire Wikipedia page for the city of Pastavy has, and the Wikipedia page doesn't mention the church at all.  It does say that the city has a population of 19,800 people, it's located on the River Myadelki (which I'm guessing is the river in the photo) and it celebrated its 600th anniversary in 2009.
