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.

  • Meeting nights are the 3rd and 5th Mondays of each month. There are no meetings in December or January.
  • We gather around 7pm-ish for an informal catchup and chat with the formal meeting starting at 7:30pm.
  • We meet at the Sunways Function Room[enter from: 1311 Gregory Street Lake Wendouree 3350]

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.
