How to post your letter

To get your letter on its way ASAP, simply post it over the counter at a Post Office prior to closing time, or in a red street-posting box before 6pm Monday to Friday (check the details on the box just in case, as clearance times can differ, depending on the location).

Items posted on weekends or public holidays will begin their delivery journey the next business day.
