The memorabilia here and the super-friendly post-mistress meant we stayed here so much longer than we thought we would need. Don't think twice about stopping in here to have a chat about the way things used to be. Franking our own postcards was fun too!

A lovely little building. Do go inside and if you're lucky, as we were, then the charming'postmistress' Val will give you the guided tour. While it's a heritage building it's still a fully functioning post office for the Ophir population of 58 souls. A lovely bit of living history.

When we arrived the Post Office had just closed. Val saw us and invited us in for a guided tour. My daughter sent a post card and even hand franked the stamp - just like the old days! Thank you Val
