Trip to Tasmania – Day 2

Tamworth to Narrandera – 720km along the Oxley and Newell Highways.

Letter boxes, why not? In Australia they are everywhere and come in many different shapes, sizes, materials, colours and number at the same point. It was quite entertaining to observe them when we were driving the long straight road sections in central NSW. In here you can enjoy some of the 10 million letter boxes in Australia.

As we drive out of the Tamworth area towards the West the landscape becomes much flat and the farming/grazing properties much bigger. One sign indicating a big property is the fact that most the time we only see one single letter box (WS2) at the road turn off on the side of the highway. However, more than one (WS1) letter box only means that the turn off serves properties further away and not necessarily smaller.

The main posting shows how elaborated the letter boxes can be, in this case describing the main activity in the property. It is a detail of one of the few side roads with multiple boxes, near Gunnedah.
