Inventive Australia
Part 1, Lick & Stick
Design: Stuart McLachlan - Typography: Sharon Rodziewicz, Australia Post Design Studio - Printer: Energi Print
Australian inventors have taken the world by storm in a number of arena's, a small number are listed here, the first stamp has two shown on it, the Esky and the Wine Cask, the Esky is an insulated box able to keep food and drinks chilled for hours on end a God-send in the Australian climate, it was invented in 1952 by Malley's, the Wine Cask was produced to meet a need, pre 1960 flagons were how you purchased your wine in bulk, but the product deteriorated quickly leaving a bad taste in your mouth so to speak, the advent of the wine cask changed this as it allowed the wine to keep for long periods of time, the first company to market wine in casks was Angrove's of Renmark, South Australia; the second stamp shows the Hills Hoist, the modern Hills Hoist was first patented by Melbourne Blacksmith Gilbert Toyne in 1926, rotary hoists did exist before this, but they were fixed in height and expensive, putting them outside the means of the average Aussie; the third stamp in this series again shows two items, the Speedos and Zinc Cream, Speedos were swimsuits, Alexander MacRae (a Scot, 1888-1938), they were produced to reduce the drag in the water while swimming marketing began in 1928, Zinc Cream was invented by Faulding Pharmaceuticals in 1940, made from Zinc Oxide it stopped ultra-violet rays from reaching in skin, a major problem here in Oz; the fourth stamp again lists two items, the B & D Roll-A-Door and the Ute, the B & D was the first all steel door able to be rolled closed without damage, Arthur Byrne and Paul Davidson with their company accountant moved their board meeting to Hyde Park, Sydney, to escape the heat, where they discussed what to do with left over scrap metal, which lead to the development of the first commercial door, the Ute was develop[ed in 1932 after a farmer's wife from rural Victoria wrote to Ford Australia's Geelong plant, requesting a vehicle that could be driven to church on Sunday and be used to deliver pigs on Monday, Lewis Bandt, the plan's chief body engineer and designer came up with the design; the fifth stamp in this series is the Victa Rotary Lawnmower, the design was inspired by Lawrence Hall in 1948, on seeing a demonstration Mervyn Victor Richardson realised the potential it held and in 1952 released his own simple design, naming it the Victa. all five of these stamps were also released in the peel & stick format.

Part 1, Lick & Stick
Stamp Design: Hoyne Design Product Design: Simone Sakinofsky, Australia Post Design Studio - Printer: McKellar Renown
This release features on four of this countries iconic dishes, all 55c in value, they are the Pavolva, the Peach Melba, Lamingtons and the Anzac Biscuit; the Pavlova was first created in Australia in 1935 by Herbert Sasche at the Esplanade Hotel, it was inspired and named in tribute to Anna Pavolva, the Russian Prima Ballerina; the Peach Melba was named after Dame Nellie Melba by it's creator Auguste Escoffier; the humble Lamington is a truly Australian creation, tradition holds that Lady Lamington received unexpected guests and had nothing but a stale sponge to serve them, so she resurrected it using liquid chocolate and desiccated coconut, it was a hit and has been ever since; there are many recipes and stories of origins for the ANZAC biscuits, claimed both by Australia and New Zealand, whatever the true story they were named after both countries solders who fought in the great war of 1915 and as far as I am concerned, our two peoples bled and died together so there is no two there is a we.

Australia's Favourite Stamps
Part 1, Lick & Stick
Stamp/Product Design: Jo Muré, Australia Post Design Studio
Prestige Booklet Design: Adan Crapp, Australia Post Design Studio - Printers: Energo Print
For this release Australia Post sought the public's opinion and invited them to choose between 150 stamps, these stamps would represent our culture, heritage, major events and special achievements since our first stamps were issued in New South Wales in 1850, the public was in my opinion right on the money with the five chosen; the first was the £2 (two pound) Kangaroo & Map, this stamp was originally issued in 1913 as a part of a series of stamps of a uniform type, the only changes were the value and colour, this stamp continued to be issued for sale in different values until after 1945, this stamp was also not without controversy as many people were upset that a portrait of the monarch was not included; the second was the 5/- (five shilling) Opening of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, well known as the 'Five Bob Bridge' it was issued in 1932 and was even forged along with another stamp; the third was the 2½d ()two & a half pence) Peace and Victory stamp issued in 1946, featuring a seven pointed star and a wreath, the star represented the Australian States & Territories and was issued to celebrate the end of World War II; the fourth stamp chosen was the 8½d (eight & a half pence) 'One Pound Jimmy' he was Gwoya Jungarai a well known traditional Aborigine of the time, this stamp was first issued in 1950; the last stamp was the 6d (six penny) Kookaburra issued in 1914, this stamp was designed along with others to replace the Kangaroo & Map stamps.

This next release has created a series of problems for me as a joint issue with the Territories as they are a part of the Australian issues but a separate part, I had intended to list them much later, but now I must list the Territories, although I have been sorting through them for some time and will list them as I am able, but the territory issues will not have a number until I catch up.
 
Species At Risk - Joint Territories
Part 1, Lick & Stick
Illustration: Kevin Stead - Stamp/Product Design: John White, Australia Post Design Studio - Printer: McKellar Renown
This release is a joint issue the Territories so the part numbers reflect that issue, the suffix shown below for each external territory, is NI = Norfolk Island; AAT = Australian Antarctic Territory; CI = Christmas Island and CKI = Cocos (Keeling) Island, I will leave Papua New Guinea to another time as it is no longer an Australian Territory after achieving independence.  The AAT, Christmas Island and the Cocos (Keeling) Island stamps are all valid for use in Australia, the listed animals are under threat of extinction, the are left to right the Australian Bridled Nailtail Wallaby, (Onychogalea fraenata), this animal has very distinctive markings; the second stamp is Norfolk Islands Green Parrot (Cyanoramphus cooki) or Red-crowned Parakeet, once prolific their numbers are declining rapidly; the third st6amp is the AAT's Subtropic Fur Seal, (Arctocephalus tropicalis), in Australia this fur Seal only breeds on Macquarie Island; the fourth stamp is Christmas Islands Blue-tailed Skink, (Cryptoblepharus egeriae), this reptile has a very distinctive bright blue tail and is only found on Christmas Island; the fifth and last is the Cocos Green Turtle, (Chelonia mydas) this turtle is the largest of the hard-shelled sea turtles.  There is an interesting contention with this release the second stamp (Norfolk Island) is not valid for postage anywhere in Australia including the other Territories, although the other three are valid for use in Oz, AND the four (Australian, AAT, Christmas Island & Cocos (Keeling) Islands are not valid for postage in Norfolk Island.

'Shearing (Nissan Hut) Shed' taken at Bushy ParkCattle Station, Queensland, by Jaen-Marc La Roque.
'Magney House' taken at Bingie Bingie Point, New South Wales, designed by architect by Glen Murcutt and phographed byAnthony Bronwell
This release highlights a product that is as Australian as they now come, although a British product invented and patented in 1829, it became a mainstay for Australian building construction in our early years, by 1880 Au8stralia had become Britain's biggest customer.  Even today it is still an iconic part of our landscape both in the country and city.  The four stamps are Water Tank, used in the bush and set up high to allow for the natural fall of gravity, as a rule water was pumped up from an underground well or bore by wind power; Traditional Home, this was a basic construction type although designs varied the essential make up was the same; Shearing Shed, this is a Nissan Hut converted into a shed, Nissan Huts were widely used during both wars and then finding many uses after the war; Magney House is not only practical it is a working project as the roof collects rain water that is then recycled for use.
