We are a Registered Society, recorded at Hamburg. Currently, we have 57 members (including those in Australia). We are politically and confessionally neutral. The aim: The purpose of our association is to form a community of philatelic collectors specialising in Australia, and to promote research and cataloguing. Within the association, there are individual study teams that deal with all aspects of Australian philately and cultivate contacts and exchanges with each other. Our members participate in competitive exhibitions to show our work to a wider public What we do: The purpose of our association is to form a community of philatelic collectors specialising in Australia, and to promote research and cataloguing. Within the association, there are individual study teams that deal with all aspects of Australian philately and cultivate contacts and exchanges with each other. Our members participate in competitive exhibitions to show our work to a wider public. Our goals: United we stand! A single individual may know much – many know more. Our goal is to record the knowledge of our members and make it available to all the others, as well as to the public. Not knowing something is not a fault – we want to establish a forum where each and everyone can share the knowledge of more experienced collectors and receive helpful and collegial assistance. Generally, we strive to stimulate and cultivate contacts among collecters of Australian philatelic materials. What we offer: The Australia Collectors Circle publishes a newsletter, the “Bumerang“ (in German) at regular intervals. It contains results of the study teams' or individual members' work, which are presented for discussion. We regularly provide circulating packets and group offers that help our members to enlarge and complete their collections on the one hand, and permit them on the other to pass on duplicates and supporting documents to those who can make good use of them. We foster cooperation with other societies, in particular those with common interests and related topics. We offer advice for building up collections to exhibition readiness. At present, our annual dues amount to 30 €.
