Australian Space Booklets, Stamp Packs & Special Products


Australia Post have released several fantasy Special Events Sheetlets depicting scenes and characters from the Star Trek and Star Wars movies and the Dr Who series. These will not be listed as they are considered highly priced, extremely exploitative and not directly related to Space. They are also not associated with a recognised philatelic event such as a stamp exhibition.
