AUSTRALIAN PHILATELIC FEDERATION - Home of Organised Philately

The APF was formed in Sydney in 1983 and became incorporated in Canberra in 1985
The Australian Philatelic Federation is the peak National body of organised philately in Australia. It is a federation of the seven State organisations (ACT Philatelic Council, Philatelic Association of NSW Inc, The Queensland Philatelic Council, the South Australian Philatelic Council, The Tasmanian Stamp Council, The Victorian Philatelic Council, and The Western Australian Philatelic Council (Inc.) ) whose members, in turn, are representatives of local clubs and societies, stamp dealers and in some cases representatives of Australia Post.

The Federation is a member of the Federation Internationale de Philatelie (FIP) and the Federation of Inter-Asian Philately (FIAP).

Overall, the role of the APF is to create an environment within Australia which creates interest in the hobby generally, and the various philatelic events specifically, such that new collectors will emerge, and existing collectors will be encouraged to join clubs and even exhibit their material. This role includes the need to keep collectors advised on a timely basis of changes which could affect their collecting interests and activity.
