“One attraction of many”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

Hey the picture says it all. It's actually just one attraction of the jewel that is Hideaway marine reserve. Go there (but not just for the PO).

“So funny, the kids loved it!”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

Be sure to post some postcards! They arrived in Australia around 2wks later. Such a funny concept!
Visibility in the water is amazing. If you have kids/teenagers, be sure to visit.

“Cool”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

This is our 3rd time at Hideaway. Our kids love diving down into the post office and having their photo taken. It's just the coolest thing ever. We tell people about it and they just can't believe it's real.
