Historical information

The year 2007 marked two occasions for Russian migrants living in Australia, especially those who associate with the "White Movement" - the 200th year of diplomatic relations between Australia and the (then) Russian Empire (now the Russian Federation). These stamps also commemorate the first official visit of Grand Duchess Maria of Russia - heir of the Romanoff dynasty - to Australia.
