Find out why you should become involved in the most popular hobby in the world.

Did you know that stamp collecting is the most popular hobby in the world?

In Australia there are over one million stamp collectors. There are many reasons why people collect stamps, but the main one is that it is easy and fun. People often begin collecting because they like the designs on particular stamps, or because of an interest in a favourite topic, such as sport, animals or space exploration. Stamp collecting is a great way to learn about other countries too. Stamp collecting is also wonderful as you can learn about all sorts of things, in this case, things that sting or bite!
