“A bit gimmicky”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

My 6 year old daughter was very fascinated by this and throroughly enjoyed it but I really don't see the point of it. Just a kennel and a mail box chained underwater!

“Fun little adventure”
Reviewed April 17, 2012

A very easy snorkel to the underwater post office. You pay $5 AUS for a card and write in pencil to send your underwater postcard. The water was murky around the area of the post office when we visited, luckily we had a guy who was staying on the island snorkel over and show us where it was. So if you are not sure, ask a local.

“Pretty cool...”
Reviewed April 12, 2012

I have a feeling there is a service where you can 'pay' to go to this, but we simply swam up to it...its only a few metres out of the island!

You can purchase post cards and pop them in...and I think it is also newly painted and looks a lot smarter now than some of the old photos suggest.

It is part of the stretch of reef alongside Hideaway Island
