Australia Post prepaid postcode postcards

I’d like to have a little gallery of the Australia Post prepaid postcode postcards here - so that I can see where they are available, and maybe start a collection if they’re still available (I’m having difficulty getting the Canberra one again…they’ve run out…and haven’t had any for a while. I’ll ask again when I’m next in town):

P.S. A couple of cities have more than one card available. If I’ve linked the wrong card to the wrong post-office in the list above…just let me know. In some cases I’ve listed all the variations separately…because I don’t know if they’re all genuine, or where they were obtained.

Oh! I’ve never heard of these, they’re interesting - I can’t say I’ve seen any in my state (vic)

I’ll start the ball rolling with a couple of the officials I’ve sent so far:

Canberra ACT 2600 - purchased in the GPO on Alinga Street, Civic…but I have not seen them in stock recently.

Alice Springs NT 0870 - purchased in the post office on Hartley Street.

I found these today on @IndigoAngel’s wall:

Geelong VIC 3220

Katoomba NSW 2780

Dubbo NSW 2830

Bathurst NSW 2795

And on other walls:

Melbourne VIC 3000

Maryborough QLD 4640

Mooloolaba QLD 4557

Noosa Heads QLD 4567

Rockhampton QLD 4700

Port Macquarie NSW 2444

Parkes NSW 2870

Coffs Harbour NSW 2450

Queen Victoria Building NSW 1230

There are some Australians who collect them avidly.

Here is an official link from the Australian Post Office:

I’m a bit confused about the Bodalla and Narooma cards linked above. I don’t see them on the Australia Post list of sites afforded their own ‘Local Souvenir’ range…and there are multiple different designs…so maybe these ones are made in the same style by someone else, and not part of the Australia Post series?

I have sent this one in the past but it has been sold out for some time now.

I don’t have photos but I’ve sent one in the past few months from Gympie QLD (the gold digger statue) and Mooloolaba QLD and they both still had plenty of stock.

Thanks @twinkledee!

I’m looking and looking for the Cairns one.
Surely someone has sent one of these from Cairns officially…so I can link to it up the top here! But do you think I can find one? No…I can not!

Nor have I found any from Adelaide in the offical card gallery…yet. I’m not even going to tell you how many pages I’ve scrolled back in the gallery of Australian cards. Suffice to say, a lot! I guess I’ll go search for peeps who live in Adelaide next and look at their walls (I’ve done that for Cairns…no luck yet). Someone must have sent some of the Adelaide ones!


I’ll keep an eye out!!

I haven’t sent this one yet, but it’s one of the Adelaide cards. I bought it at the GPO. I didn’t realise there were different ones at other post offices around the city so will have to check them out.

Oh that’s a beauty @Babykangi Donna!! I love it. :heart_eyes:

Can you let me know if it ever ends up on your wall and I’ll link to it in my list up in the first post. It’ll be a wiki of these cards, for future reference.

Thank you so much for showing it here! :+1:t2:

Oh…and I’m just assuming there are different cards at all the post offices on the list…because there are different ones in Sydney.

Love your commitment Sam!

Does the list of post offices in the first post signify the POs where these cards are probably sold?

If so, I’ll check Albury and Beechworth sometime next week and report back :disguised_face:

Yes @missmelbourne.

They’re listed on the Oz Post website as being part of the ‘just over 100’ locations where the Local Souvenir range is/were?? available.

I’d love it if you could check those two places!
That’s awesome. Thank you! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

I’ll see if I can ask the next time I’m out in the melb. CBD :slight_smile: I’m slightly disappointed because those are the only accessible ones to me out of all of these :frowning: Where’s the Melb eastern suburbs ones? Lol


Yeah, the locations are a bit hit and miss. Only one that I know of in Canberra and it’s been out of stock for months. I’m not all that hopeful that they’re still being produced. I bought a bunch in Sydney of the QVB a few months back…and they were selling them for one dollar or thereabouts. I think they were getting rid of stock. But I hope I’m wrong! :crossed_fingers:t2:

I’m up to page 1178 of the Aussie gallery (which only dates back to April this year…:tired_face:. Any time I find one, I also check if the user has sent others.

…and Albury just popped up on page 1194

My work here is done for tonight! :rofl:.
