Hey everyone,
I recently inherited a stamp collection. I'm a beginner from Germany. These are stamps with the title "Australia". I would need help identifying if there is anything of significant value here. If anyone could help I would appreciate it.

There are some nice stamps here.
I like the Australian states ones in particular. Some are revenues, but all bear careful identification and care. Some look like they need a bath. Take your time. Some value here.

The WA black one penny swan is a forgery, as is the 2 pence grey/blue. The squared "U" of Australia is characteristic of forged examples.

Nothing of any value in the NSW stamps.

The Samoa Express stamp is surely a reprint.

Agreed.

Your stamps are not financially valuable, but nonetheless some very nice stamps.

Th Western Australian 2d Yellow (Black Swan) has a 15 bar, numeral "20" Postmark
Distribution : First issued 1859, Champion Bay (1859) renamed to "GERALDTON" 1887

Lovely town on the West Coast.
