Welcome to the Home Page of:

Launceston Philatelic Society Limited.

ACN 151 343 761

You are visitor No.39453 to this site.

The Society was founded in 1946 by a group of people who had a common interest in stamp collecting and sharing their passion. The Society has continued to foster philately since that date and at present has a very active membership. Some of the members interests are, in addition to Tasmania, Austalia and other countries in the region, maritime exploration, Antarctica,  Tasmanian  postal history  and Stamp  Duty stamps and their usage and postcards just to mention a few. There are also many members who are just interested in collecting a specific country , the world in general or specific themes.

The Society holds general meetings twice a month at the Max Fry Hall in Trevallyn commencing at 7:00pm. The formal part of the meeting is usually very short which is followed by a philatelic sale, a member's display or some other feature and we conclude with an opportunity to purchase philatelic material from the latest exchange/circuit sheets.   We also conduct a Market Day, featuring stamps, coins and postcards, every six months (in March and September) which is open to the public and entry to this event is free.
In June 2011 the Society became a Company Limited by Guarantee.
