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.

  • Visit the majestic General Post Office, in Sydney, and experience a unique landmark with awe-inspiring architecture and magnificent construction you won't find anywhere else.
  • Experience the General Post Office to get a feel for and appreciate unique Australian history. It has archives and photo galleries that you just won't want to miss.
