Amanda Morrison's award-winning photo on the Australia Post stamp released today.

AN image taken by Kingston photographer Amanda Morrison will feature on an Australia Post stamp from today.

The image, “This is So Relaxing!” taken of a native kangaroo sunning itself on a beach will feature in a new Living Australian stamp issue launched by Australia Post.

“This is absolutely fantastic! It is such a pleasure knowing my image will travel around the nation and overseas for all to see on the front of envelopes,” Ms Morrison said.

Ms Morrison is one of five finalists from the national Living Australian photography competition initiated by the Australia Day Council of NSW in 2010.

The Living Australian stamp issue includes five 60-cent stamps and will be available at participating Australia Post retail outlets across the country.

In the lead up to Australia Day 2011, the ADCNSW with the support of Australia Post encouraged Australians to explore the theme of “Who We Are” as a nation, by showcasing how they live as Australians every day through photography.
