Want to help out?

The Philatelic Association of NSW, Inc. (Philas) offers the opportunity for people who have an interest in stamp collecting to assist in the administration of our hobby. This administration is conducted by volunteers, who freely give of their time in their pursuit of advancing their hobby. For retired collectors, time spent at Philas House can be a day out communing with like-minded people.

The former Philas House located in central Sydney was sold in February 2023 and Philas activities are suspended while new premises are being fitted out at Silverwater in suburban Sydney. The new premises will have meeting rooms, a kitchen and a large collection of reference materials for collectors.
