About Australia Post

Founded in 1809, Australia’s postal service was created by former convict Isaac Nichols, who was appointed to take charge of all mail arriving into the young Colony of New South Wales. He ran our first Post Office out of his home on George Street in Sydney. He would list the names of people who had received mail in The Sydney Gazette, and the person picking up their mail paid with a shilling per letter, or more for parcels. Certain members of the upper class had their mail hand-delivered personally by Nichols.

Today, Australia Post employs people from 137 different countries, speaking 65 different languages. Australia Post is keen for people with a disability to lead fulfilling lives, so 6.9% of their employees have a disability of some kind. As for gender equality, Australia Post is doing fine, with their executive workforce being 34% women.

Australia Post’s distinctive “P” logo was introduced in 1975.

Did you know? Australia Post is completely self-funded and doesn’t take any money from taxpayers, despite being a government-owned company.

How Australia Post supports the community

  • Community grants: The Our Neighbourhood community grants program supports projects and organisations that create positive change in neighbourhoods across Australia. The focus is on local communities, regional and remote communities, socially disadvantaged people, Indigenous Australians, cultural and linguistic diverse groups, people with a disability, and small businesses (of up to 20 employees). National Community Partners that Our Neighbourhood sponsors include Infoxchange, The Pyjama Foundation, and Netball Australia.
  • Jobs for refugees: Since 2010, Australia Post has partnered with Foundation House in the Ucan2 program, providing mentors and casual employment opportunities for refugees aged 16-24.
  • Sponsoring worthy causes: Australia Post sponsors other worthy causes including the Red Cross, the Banksia Sustainability Awards, the GiveEasy donations mobile app, The Big Issue, and Schools Connect Australia work experience programs.
  • Farm ecommerce: Farmhouse is an online farmers’ market that provides an ecommerce method for farmers to sell their produce online without a middle man.
  • Literacy skills: Australia Post is breeding a new generation of literacy-savvy youngsters with their Education website packed with free resources for teachers and students about writing, collectables, and the postal system.

How Australia Post protects the environment

  • Free recycling: Since 2008, Australia Post has partnered with MobileMuster to make it easy for us to recycle our old mobile phones. Simply pick up a satchel and post the mobile to the recycling centre for free. As of 2015 more than 283,000 MobileMuster satchels have been posted, meaning more than 60 tonnes of mobile phone handsets, batteries and chargers have been recycled rather than sent to landfill. AusPost also recycles printer cartridges through the Cartridges 4 Planet Ark program, since 2003. They have also recycled over 4 million cigarette butts to date.
  • Emissions: So far carbon emissions have been reduced by 14% compared to 2000 levels, which is on track to meet a 25% reduction by 2020.

Posties: New motorbikes, vans, and sedans have enhanced fuel efficiency for the Postie Fleet, by as much as 60% for bike riders. AusPost has also launched Australia’s first 100% electric commercial van.
