2009 Australia Post Stamp Pack Aust. Antarctic Territories
A very nice post pack with 2 pairs of MNH stamps and the minisheet issued with all 4 stamps set in the pane.
A great collectible for the future.
The Australian Antarctic Territory is the part of Antartica claimed by Australia and is the largest territory of Antarctica claimed by any nation. The claim is formally recognised by only four states, each of which also has a claim over part of the Antarctic. The area is estimated at 5,896,500 km².The territory is inhabited only by the staff of research stations. The Australian Antartic Division administers the area primarily by maintaining three year-round stations, Mawson, Davis and Casey, which support various research projects.
