This is a survey of the postage stamps and postal history of Queensland, a former British Crown Colony that is now part of Australia.

First stamps

The first stamps of Queensland were issued on 1 November 1860. Before that, Queensland used the stamps of New South Wales from 1851.[1] All of Queensland's postage stamps portrayed Queen Victoria. Between 1 January 1880 and 1 July 1892, revenue stamps of 1866-1892 were authorised for postal use.
