Commemorative Issue: Australia Post - 200 Years
This very special issue of 10 stamps celebrates 200 years of postal
services in Australia and reflects the contribution they have made
to the everyday lives of Australians over the last two centuries.
In 1809 Isaac Nichols became the first postmaster of New South
Wales - a position he was to hold for a decade, but Australia's first
postman would not be appointed until 1828. He was the servant of
Sydney Postmaster, George Panton.
