Price: $ 15.00

2003 cover commemorating the 200th anniversary of European settlement in Tasmania.

Australia Post created this commemorative postmark, only available at Rosny Park Post Office on the 12th September (the exact date of Lt. Bowen's landing at Risdon Cove, near Hobart). The Tasmanian Government chose not to commemorate the event, so this could be the only item commemorating the occasion.

 

We made less than 50 of these covers.  The stamp features a fly fisherman in the Tasmanian 'Lakes' region and a Brown Trout (first introduced into Australia in Tasmania in 1864).
