The Fair Dinkum Aussie Alphabet series of stamps takes a light-hearted look at Australia through our cultural icons, inventions, places, characters, flora, and fauna and more. It explores our unique brand of “Aussie” humour and showcases our ability to laugh at ourselves.

Each letter of the alphabet has its own stamp that is filled with elements starting with that letter. The idea is to identify as many as possible and string together a good old Aussie yarn.


Part three of this stamp series sees illustrator Gavin Ryan produce some cracking illustrations for five letters of the alphabet: B, G, J, K and U.
