Places of Significance - Cairns Regional Council

This site is shown as reserved for Post and Telegraph purposes in the name of the Commonwealth of Australia. The building dates from 1911 or 1912. In a typology study of Post Offices the building is identified as a Type T 17–Twin Porch, Gable and Lantern. The Commonwealth Postmaster General's Department was created in 1901, but the State Department of Works continued to design and construct post offices on behalf of the Commonwealth Government until 1920, after which the responsibility was assumed by the Queensland Branch of the Commonwealth Department of Works.
