About Us

Most members are advanced or intermediate collectors. Our members have wide collect interests, not just Australia. If you collect something other than Australia, you will probably find our club the best way to meet collectors who can help you build up your collection.
Some of the areas where there are many knowledgeable members include: Postal history, military mail, commercially oriented Aerophilately, China, Africa, Great Britain and United States.

Affiliated with

The Philatelic Association of NSW (PHILAS)
