2001'Mooloolaba' postcard airmail to England with rare solo franking of $1 Koala 'International POST' overprint SG 628a and 'Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary' tab tied Southgate MC '13/MAR/2001' cancel, fine condition. A modern rarity, presumably from a tourist who visited the Sanctuary in Brisbane and bought the stamp there.

This emergency overprint converted a pre-GST stamp (which was sold 'GST-inclusive' after 1.7.2000) into an International Post issue sold GST-exclusive. It was only ever applied to this particular P-Sheet issue and was not available for sale at Australia Post counters. Mail Orders were supplied the overprinted stamp only with the generic AP employee Angela Thom tab; neither the order for this personalised stamp nor the date of withdrawal of the overprinted stamp are known, but in April 2001 it was replaced with an International Post $1 Kangaroo design.
