Australia Post

At Australia Post, we’ve been part of the fabric of life in rural and regional Australia for almost 200 years.  Ever since the nation’s postal service was founded in 1809, our core business has always involved connecting Australians to one another and the world.

Today, our competitive strength comes from the fact that we have maintained a nationwide network that truly services the entire Australian population.  This widespread presence puts Australia Post at the heart of hundreds of rural and regional communities.

As Australia’s longest continually operating organisation in Australia it is fitting that we have partnered with Australia’s oldest and most prestigious footrace. Australia Post has recently signed on to be the naming rights sponsor of the Gift through until 2013, bringing our partnership to 19 years, making it our longest ever sponsorship.
