AUS­TRALIA Post marks his­toric world her­itage con­vict sites on Nor­folk Is­land with the re­lease of two new stamps. Fo­cus­ing on the pe­nal set­tle­ment build­ings, ru­ins and arche­o­log­i­cal re­mains, the stamps recog­nise two sites set­tled and then later aban­doned by early Bri­tish set­tlers. They fea­ture the New Gaol, which was com­pleted in 1847, and the Pris­on­ers’ Bar­racks, com­pleted in 1835. The Week­ender and Aus­tralia Post have five stamp packs to give away. Send your name, ad­dress and phone num­ber to Nor­folk Is­land Stamp Give­away, Locked Bag 2, North­bridge WA 6865 or email week­ender@com­mu­ni­tynews. See­mu­nity news­di­tions.
