Video: In a video, we pass a front yard where a mother, son and an inquisitive black Labrador tend to the front garden.
Audio: Instrumental music.
Voice Over: Dear Australia,
Video: It’s early morning and we pass a tradesman saying goodbye to his wife as he loads his ute, as the children play on the grass.
Voice over: We’ve been seeing a lot of you now that you’re home a bit more.
Video: We move past a house where two sisters sit on the front step - their mum watching over them from the front veranda.
Voice over: And we’ve noticed some wonderful things.
Video: Through the autumn leaves we see a young man with a smile on his face holding a box, walking towards the front gate.
Voice over: Strangers becoming neighbours, neighbours becoming friends
Video: We move past some neighbours, catching up over the small side fence along the driveway – a man waves towards the camera.
Voice over: and even tea parties over side fences.
Video: We then see a mother and son on their balcony in an apartment building, waving as we move past with smiles on their faces.
Voice over: We wanted to mark this moment
Video: We pass by three children on the front deck of their house, one holds up a picture as the others throw paper planes.
Voice over: in our history.
Video: Standing behind his fence on a rural property, an elderly gentleman drinks his morning coffee and nods.
Voice over: so we’ve created a national letterbox
Video: An envelope appears on screen with an address on the front. It reads “Share your experience of this time in a letter. Send it to: Dear Australia, Locked Bag, Australia 9999”.
Voice over: where you can share your experience of this time in a letter which we’ll preserve for future generations
Video: It’s late afternoon and we end on a Postie, riding his bike slowly on the footpath. An Australia Post logo then appears on screen against a red backdrop.
Voice over: we look forward to hearing from you. Love, Australia Post
