Chinchilla is a town in Queensland, famous for its delicious watermelons. In fact, this tiny town (pop. 3,681) produces 25% of Australia's melons! Every other year they host the Chinchilla Melon Festival. "If you've never tried skiing with watermelons on your feet, you should come to our Melon Festival," writes the sender of the card. Mark your calendars - the next one is in February 2013.
The image is art by French-born Australian artist Francois Corneloup titled "Chinchilla Melons."
The stamp is the same as the one here.
