Philatelic Society of Australia

About Us

The Philatelic Society of Australia was first mentioned in journals in 1887. It went into recess about 1889, and it has held continuous meetings since 1911.

We offer the following services to our members: information, interesting displays, auctions at each meeting, competitions, and the only daytime weekday meeting in Sydney.

Library - We donated our library to The Philatelic Association of NSW (PHILAS) and our members can borrow from this extensive library.

Membership is about 50 with attendance at each meeting being around 20.
