Australia - 150 years of Skiing

It is almost incredible that recreational skiing commenced in Australia 150 years ago in 1861 at about the same time as it did in other areas in the world.

Commemorative Stamp Issue

To mark the sesquicentenary occasion Australia Post issued a set of Skiing Stamps.

Perisher Historical Society lobbied for this via Federal Parliamentarian Paul Fletcher MP, Member for Bradfield; we are very grateful for his assistance in this initiative.

Good publicity was achieved for PHS with a piece in the North Shore Times August 12, 2011.
