The Fair Dinkum Aussie Alphabet series of stamps takes a light-hearted look at Australia through our cultural icons, places, characters, flora, fauna and more. Each letter of the alphabet has its own stamp that’s filled with elements starting with that letter. Each design explores our unique brand of “Aussie” humour.
The stamps

Part four of this humorous stamp series sees illustrator Gavin Ryan produce five further stamps for the letters E, O, X, Y and Z.

See what you can find within each stamp and create your own Aussie yarn! We’ve put some together for you in our blog article too.
