Commemorative Issue: Heavy Haulers
The biggest, the longest, the heaviest, the fastest. Machinery that surpasses
the realms of the "reasonable" is often an object of real fascination. Such
heavy machinery is not produced in Australia, but by large international
companies. Perhaps not surprisingly, each of the brawny machines plays a
vital role in Australia's minerals industry; an industry that includes exploration,
mining and processing.
