I have this cachet from the front of an illustrated FDC, but I have no information about it. It is most likely Australian but I don't know if it is privately made or issued by the post office, or indeed what was its period of use.
Can anyone help with some information please!

It turns up on the first page of a 28 page thread on Stampboards for Australia first day cover makers:

Does the thread identify the maker? (I only read the first page).

I took it to be "Australia Wide Covers"

It's a Van Dahl Publishing Company (Oregon, USA) general purpose cachet used on many issues. I just did a eBay search on "Dahl FDC" and received 34 hits.

Aha! Thanks Glenn,
I was wondering why, Australia was not featured in the cachet.
Solved.

Thank you everyone for your comments and for "solving" it. The cachet was in a box of Australian covers, hence my assumption, but it was a poor guess on my part.
I should have twigged to it ... the globe has a picture of north america front and centre, not Australia. Now that I know who made the cover I find, just as Glenn Estus did, that it pops up everywhere if you know what to search for.
