What’s more we are interested in you and your collecting experiences. We would love to hear from you to showcase your stories on the site. Everything from information about your collections, your expert commentary on specialist areas of philately, your views on recent news/events, anything you want to share that demonstrates your passion for the popular hobby is welcome. Even a philatelic event you would like to share with the community has a place on the Australia Post Collectables website.

Stamp collecting is one of the world's most popular hobbies. In Australia alone there are over 1 million stamp collectors, of all ages. Our stamp designs reflect important moments in Australian history and culture, and celebrate the environment in which we live. It takes 2 years for most stamps to come to life from the initial idea.
