Heritage letter boxes

A number of years ago in response to the increasing volume of bulk mail and parcels being mailed, Australia Post closed many old post boxes and replaced them with larger boxes. Many of the old letter boxes were removed, but some were left in place at the request of the councils at the time. Responsibility for maintaining them was unclear and these boxes deteriorated.  

In 2009 all nine closed, heritage letterboxes in the City of Port Phillip were revitalised under the terms of an agreement between Australia Post and CoPP to share responsibility for their on-going maintenance. The closed letter boxes were cleaned and repainted: missing crowns were replaced on top, graffiti, old labels and dirt cleaned off, the pillars given a fresh coat of red paint and decorative details highlighted in gold. Under the terms of this new agreement Australia Post has undertaken to continue to maintain the heritage letterboxes in this condition.

If you notice any damage or graffiti to the heritage letterboxes, please contact Australia Post on 13 76 78.
