Stamp of Australia

The Stamp of Australia is a snapshot of 200 years of Australia's history viewed through the prism of the Post Office and the remarkable letters it delivered.
In 1809, Governor Lachlan Macquarie appointed a thief as Australia's first Postmaster. Isaac Nichols had been convicted - according to legend - of stealing a donkey. Nichols started a business that today is worth billions of dollars and touches every Australian.
Fly across the outback on the world's longest mail run for a 200-year salute to the horse riders and stagecoach drivers, the fearless aviators and outback posties, the legends and characters whose intrepid deeds pioneered Australia's postal service and tamed the tyranny of distance across a vast continent. Hosted by Scott McGregor.
