Victorian Issues
Attempts were made to start a settlement in Victoria a number of times (in the Port Phillip area) all failing badly, so it was not until 1835 when John Bateman established a settlement, then in 1851 the area was proclaimed Victoria, this colony covers an area of just under 23,000,000 hectares and gained responsible Government in 1855, then in 1901 became a member of the Commonwealth of Australia.
The first postage stamps were issued on 3 January, 1850.
