Generally, we strive to stimulate and cultivate contactsamong collecters of Australian philatelic materials.What we offer:The Australia Collectors Circle publishes a newsletter, the “Bumerang“ (in German) atregular intervals. It contains results of the study teams' or individual members' work, whichare presented for discussion.

We foster cooperation with other societies, in particularthose with common interests and related topics. We offer advice for building up collectionsto exhibition readiness.
