Abstract

In the paper, the AA. examine the role of postcards in disseminating and circulating Australian frontier myths. The ritual practice of selecting, writing, and sending a postcard is explored within the themes of souvenir, testimony, and anticipation. A report is provided of methods designed to reveal how individual tourists interpret these postcards as semiotic texts. They seem to perpetuate experiences associated with Australian frontier mythologies
