Australia Post makes sure that your mail is delivered as quickly as possible.
Your letter or parcel starts its journey when you post it in a street posting box or at your local Australia Post retail outlet.
Mail is sorted into different postcode locations by machine. Letters and parcels are sorted at separate centres.
The mail is then sent to a delivery centre in your state, in another state, or overseas.
At the delivery centre, the postie sorts the mail into streets and post office boxes ready for delivery.
The postie delivers the mail to house and business letterboxes.
