About Ilfracombe Post Office

A beautiful old tongue and groove building housing Australia Post, Library, Gift Shop and Second Hand Clothing store.

This unique building celebrated in April 2010 the Post Office centenary of the first motor mail delivery in the Commonwealth of Australia, which took place between Ilfracombe and Isisford.

2010 was the year for centenary celebrations, in January 1910 the first telephonic facilities were opened at the Post Office and in December 1910 a telephone exchange was opened.
