‘Long Weekend’ postage stamps by Australia Post

This latest set of postage stamps in the long running Through the Years series, which began in 2006, focuses on the various activities undertaken by Australians on long weekends - beginning with a beach weekend in the 1950s through to a skiing weekend in the 1990s.

The other activities featured in the stamps include fishing, camping, surfing and house-boating.

This stamp issue is accompanied by a prestige booklet, in which the stamps feature in unique blocks of four. The booklet also contains five postcards evoking long-weekend destinations at St Kilda beach, the Glasshouse Mountains, Surfers Point, the Murray River and Thredbo. A decorative gutter is also presented with this issue.
