Long Weekend

Australia
The stamp issue is a continuation of the Through the Years series, which began in 2006 with Driving Through the Years and was followed in 2007 with Caravanning Through the Years. This latest in the series focuses on the various activities undertaken by Australians on long weekends, beginning with a beach weekend in the 1950s through to a skiing weekend in the 1990s. The other activities featured in the stamps include fishing, camping, surfing and house-boating.
