Australia Post philatelic manager Michael Zsolt said Australians had a love for travel and sometimes it was the journey that counted more than the destination.

“We trust Australians who have experienced the ‘travel bug’ will appreciate these wonderful modes of transport to some of Australia’s spectacular and popular tourist destinations,” Mr Zsolt said.

The tourist transport vehicles at the centre of this new stamp issue are: Victor Harbor horse-drawn tram, South Australia; Seaplane, Whitsunday Islands, Queensland; Puffing Billy, Dandenong Ranges, Victoria; Cruise boat, Katherine Gorge, Northern Territory.

The stamps were designed by John White of the Australia Post Design Studio.

The new stamp release comprises four domestic base-rate (70c) stamps.

The products associated with this stamp issue include a first day cover, stamp pack, booklet of 10 x 70c and a roll of 100 x 70c self-adhesive stamps, designed gutter strip of 10 x 70c stamps, four postcards and a set of four maxicards.

The Tourist Transport stamp issue is available from March 3.
