Australia 1976, Wittenoom Gorge.
The stamp was issued as part of the series "Tourism".  

Today, visitors are asked not to visit the Wittenoom Gorges area. The most toxic blue asbestos has been mined here in the Wittenoom Gorge between 1947-1966. The Department of Local Government and Regional Development of WA now strongly discourage tourists and backpackers to visit the ghost town Wittenoom and its region, because of potential health risks.
