Australia's postal service was born on 25th April, 1809. The first post office was on George St in Sydney, a convict named Isaac Nichols was the one to take charge of all mails in NSW. The people that was listed could collect their letters in Isaac's house, which they payed a shilling per letter and the high - ranking people would get personal deliveries.
In 1828 the first Australian postman began delivering letters in the neighborhood and in 1831 the first post box for letters came out. In those days stamps were not required as it was the receiver that paid for the letter.
