Queensland's Oldest Stamp Club

The Philatelic Society of Queensland is the longest continuously running stamp club in Queensland.  Documents show that Queensland Philatelic Society, the original name of the Philatelic Society of Queensland, was founded on 10th February 1921. 

From its inception, the Society’s focus has been to promote the hobby of philately in all its aspects or, as the first constitution stated, “the objects of the Society are the perpetuation and advancement of the science of philately, to promote and encourage the development, advancement and improvement of stamp collecting, classification, study and education thereof, and suchlike and other objects relating to the practice and arts incidental to philately.”

The Society achieves this today by holding regular meetings, arranging for guest speakers, organising open days, exhibitions, and events.  Our members regularly attend and show at philatelic exhibitions around Australia, and occasionally overseas, and often come away with awards.  

PSQ has a small philatelic library which is available to members at meetings. The library list in PDF format is updated occasionally and emailed to members.  The library list is available from the Library Resources section on our Resources & Links page. Please click here.
