Postage Stamp for Northern Territory

Centenary of Exploration.

Daring i960, a postage stamp will be issued in connection with

the Northern Territory Centenary of Exploration,

In stating this today, the Postmaster-General (Mr. Davidson)

said that the Centenary’s celebration, which has Government sponsorship,

will extend from Alice Springs to Darwin. The year I960 is particulary

appropriate, as 100 years earlier John McDouall Stuart reached Central

Mount Stuart, the centre of the Australian continent.

Concluding, Mr. Davidson said that further particulars of the

stamp will be announced as early as practicable.
