About Us

The Armidale Circle was founded in 1970 as a country group within The Royal Sydney Philatelic Club.
Our members' philatelic interests are wide and varied, the club caters for the beginner, the intermediate and the advanced collectors as well as thematic and specialist collectors.
Opportunities are available at most meetings for members to display some of their material, ask questions and gain advice from other members.

Regular meetings of the Club are held at 7.45 pm on the second Wednesday of each month, except December and January. Visitors are welcome at these meetings.
