On 18 October 1973, a meeting of local residents was conducted at the home of Mr David Walker in Jackson Street, Eastern Heights. The purpose of the meeting was to consider the formation of a stamp club. When put to the meeting, it was decided and voted to proceed, and the the Ipswich Stamp Club was formed.
The Ipswich Stamp Club Inc. has seen many changes over the years, but the objectives then were no different in substance to the clubs objectives today.
It is the objective of Ipswich Stamp Club Inc. to promote to the local community and surrounding areas, the art and hobby of all aspects of philately, also to bring together like minded people of all ages within our communities, as well to facilitate the exchange of stamps and information between all who are interested.
PHILATELY (Stamp collecting) is still the biggest hobby in the world today.
We invite you to come along and have a look at the club; members will gladly answer any questions you may wish to ask. The Club meets on the first Thursday of each month (excepting January), 7pm to 10pm, 1st floor Ipswich City Council Humanities Building, 56 South Street, Ipswich. Visitors are welcome.
Club members attend many Queensland Stamp Fairs with club circuit books, as well as attending inter club meetings to exchange stamps and information. These can be from as far away as Rockhampton to Tweed on the NSW and QLD border. The Ipswich Stamp Club Inc fair is held on the first Sunday in November and has strong participation numbers.
