The Stamp of Australia

Kelly Burke


Publisher: Allen & Unwin

Format: Paperback

The story of Australia's postal services - now 200 years old - is the story of Australia itself. Australia Post's history mirrors the story of evolving transportation. It is a story of evolving technology too - from the creation of the great Overland Telegraph to modern mail sorting, from posties on horseback to present-day motorcycled deliverers and Express Post whisked across the country by jet. The Stamp of Australia is a vivid account of the adventurers, explorers, aviationers and pioneers who found ways to traverse this vast continent, and the history of Australia told through the letters they carried with them.
