Welcome to the Ballarat Stamp Club

The Ballarat Philatelic Society was founded in 1904 and is one of the oldest clubs in Victoria. It is also one of the most active stamp clubs within regional Victoria.

Parents please send a stamped self addressed DL size envelope to Ballarat Stamp Club PO Box 337, Wendouree 3355 for your stamps.

Meetings will commence again on February 15th. See details below!

  • Normally, meeting nights are the 3rd and 5th Mondays of each month. There is no meeting in December.
  • We gather around 7pm for an informal catch-up and chat with the short, formal meeting starting at 7:30pm.
  • After the formal part, there are opportunities for learning, chatting, adding to your stamp collection and more.
  • We meet at the Eastwood Leisure Complex, 20 Eastwood Street, Ballarat (directly behind Woolworths Supermarket)
  • See map here>

New members are most welcome.

Our major activities also include hosting 2 stamp fairs each year. One is held on the Monday of the Labour Day holiday in March and the other is on the 2nd Sunday of October. Club members and dealers come to provide stalls and displays of interest to the public. Our fairs are well attended and popular with local collectors.
