Christmas Island 2021 Christmas Mini Sheet of 2 Stamps MUH

Issue date: 1 November 2021

Located some 2,600 kilometres north-west of Perth, in the Indian Ocean, Christmas Island was named by Captain William Mynors, who sailed past it on Christmas Day 1643. The natural history of the island is of great importance. Christmas Island National Park, which comprises 85 square kilometres of the total landmass of 135 square kilometres, was declared in 1980. Unique vegetation and wildlife includes land crab populations of world significance.

Australia Post has produced stamps for Christmas Island since 1993, and our light-hearted Christmas Island Christmas stamp series features Santa Claus interacting with various personified island fauna.

This year’s issue, illustrated by Andrew McIntosh, shows Santa taking a well-earned break from delivering presents, to enjoy the wonderful snorkelling opportunities afforded by the island’s warm waters. Snorkelling is a popular pastime in reefs around the island, including at Flying Fish Cove, Dolly Beach, Ethel Beach, West Beach and Winifred Beach. Santa is also taking the time to chat with some local fauna, who have been eagerly awaiting his arrival.
