Governor Lachlan Macquarie – Australia Post Prestige Booklet – 2010
This delightful prestige booklet celebrates the bicentenary of Macquarie’s governance.
Contains four panes of four stamps that were designed by Stacey Zass that celebrate the importance of Lachlan Macquarie (1762-1824) as the Governor of New South Wales.
During his time as Governor (1810-1821), Macquarie provided an important vision for the colony.
He embarked on a public works program, erecting churches, parsonages, courthouses, lighthouses, convict barracks and factories.
These buildings would transform the physical appearance of the colony.
