This stamp is looking a bit worse for wear. I kept it because I like the illlustration.

Kiwi Celebrating Bicentenary Australia

stampcollection2009-45Despite the rumours, I’m pretty sure Australians & New Zealanders actually do like each other. The Kiwi and Koala in this image certainly look friendly. Though they are clearly engaging in an Australian billy tea.

These Australian Threatened Species stamps were out when I first started stamp collecting. As a result I have a LOT of these.

Missin’ the good ol’ days of $0.45 stamps. Here we are some 10 years later and they’re now $0.55. Now that’s inflation at work!

197. Laughing Kookaburra

Kookaburra

 This is a photo I took recently (3 February 2008) at a National Park in Victoria, Australia. It is a kookaburra, a native Australian bird. The ‘laughing kookaburra,’ Dacelo novaeguineae, is found throughout much of Australia, especially along the eastern coasts and the south west coast of the country.

Kookaburras belong to the kingfisher family, Alcedinidae (Coraciiformes).

From 1992… when I was 9 years old! Ah, the good ol’ days when being Aussie actually meant being Aussie…
