The town mail delivery is done on a 110cc motorbike and takes 2.5 hours to do. A new motorbike is included in the sale. The rural mail delivery is 3 days per week and takes about 5 hours to do.
The post office performs the full suite of services provided by Australia Post and sells a large variety of gift lines as well as Australia Post products, greeting cards etc.
