Antarctic Exhibition 30 Jul – 3 August 2020 Cancelled
Owing to the cancellation of the Antarctic Festival in Hobart, the Antarctic Stamp and Postcard exhibition can no longer go ahead. We regret this unfortunate cancellation but those interested will understand there is no choice. The Committee will contact those affected over coming days (as at 23/3/20) but hopes to re-schedule once the future is clearer.

Important – Fund Raiser for Melbourne 2021 FIAP Exhibition – Min Sheets
APF News (P 19) recently advertised overprinted Imperf Sports minisheets as a fund raiser for Melbourne 2021. Owing to circumstances beyond our control, there will be a delay in dealing with orders. We ask any enquirers to contact Frank Pauer at rather than Gary Brown’s email address. Thank you for your patience with this matter and we apologise for any inconvenience.
Vale Gary Brown
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden death of our friend and esteemed colleague, Gary Brown. Gary passed away on Saturday 14th of September. Gary was one of the most widely known and respected figures in Philately both within Australia and overseas and his passing will leave a serious gap both within the APF and also within the many other philatelic involvements that Gary had. Gary held a number of positions over many years, including President. We pass on our condolences to Robyn, Leanne, Mel, Nathan and family. The APF has posted a tribute to Gary on our notices tab.
