At the meeting of Central Darling Shire Council in Ivanhoe today, two reports were considered regarding the future of the old Post Office building in Wilcannia and the purchase of the existing Licensed Post Office business from the current licensee.
The reports were adopted so the Council will now purchase the business and relocate it to the Old Wilcannia Post Office building. Council will also be investigating the possibility for the opening of a Tourist Information Centre in the same building.
Clr. Ray Longfellow, Mayor of Central Darling Shire, said he was delighted that Council had resolved to operate the Post Office and return it back to the building from which it had historically operated.
“It has been approximately 15 years since the Post Office business was removed from the original Post Office building. We are pleased to see the business returning to the old building, which had served as Wilcannia’s Post Office for over 120 years.”
