New Post Offices

The Sydney Morning Herald

1 April 1843

His Excellency the Governor has approved of Post Offices being established at the following places:

Gundagai, situated sixty-five miles from Yass, on the Melbourne Road;

Albury, situated one hundred and thirty-five miles from Gundagai, on the route towards Melbourne; and

Armidale, situated one hundred and fifty miles from Port Macquarie, in the New England district.

Parties, therefore, wishing to receive their communications through any of these offices, should caution their correspondents to address their letters and newspapers to that office, distinctly by its name, and so provide against the chance of their being forwarded to any adjacent Post Office of the same county or district.
