General Post Office

The General Post Office (GPO) is a wonderful landmark in Sydney, Australia, conveniently located between George and Pitt Streets. In the early 18th century, the colonial government first set up a post office there when Governor Macquarie made the home of one Isaac Nicholls the colony's first regular post office. Designed by colonial architects, it was built in between 1866-1874. On 1 September, 1874, the new General Post Office was opened in Sydney. In 1996, the building was purchased by private owners, refurbished, and now acts as a commercial centre.
