These stamps featuring ferns from Christmas Island could almost persuade us to send our Christmas cards in the New Year!

Australia Post will release the stamp edition based on the beautiful ferns next year. The series features the ferns Tectaria devexa, Pteris tripartite, Bolbitis heteroclite and Asplenium listeri.

Thanks to the park’s Braydon Moloney for providing his photographs for most of the drawings. The botanical artist has done a fantastic job illustrating them!
