History of Australia Post
The Australian Postal Corporation is a government-owned company that provides postal services in Australia. Australia Post’s founding occurred in 1809 as a colonial post services provider, and it is the Postmaster-General’s Department’s direct successor, which was initially established in 1901. However, it was shut down in December 1975 and replaced by the Postal and Telecommunications Department. These two became separate legal entities and had been commissioned in July 1975 to take over the department’s operations as Telecom and what we now know as Australia Post. The current name and structure of the Australia Post were ratified through corporatization in 1989.
