Australia Post gives green thumb to Aussie succulents with new stamps

Published by:

Australia Post celebrates Australian succulent plants with a new stamp issue out in post offices across the country from Tuesday 20 June.

Australia Post Philatelic Manager, Michael Zsolt said, “Many Australians have a passion for the great outdoors and for gardening. We believe these stamps will pique the interest of nature-lovers and gardeners alike, providing a window onto some of our amazing native succulent species”.
