Fair Dinkum Aussie Alphabet part 4

Release date: 18 September 2018

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.
