Name: Brisbane General Post
Location: Queen and Elizabeth Streets, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
The Brisbane GPO is of a complex of five interconnected buildings included on the Commonwealth Heritage List located between Queen and Elizabeth Streets in the Brisbane CBD. Primarily built over the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, the complex includes the old General Post Office, the old Electric Telegraph Office, the original Parcel Post Building, the Operations Building and the old Telegraph Stores.
The Conservation Management Plan (CMP) was commissioned by Australia Post to update their 1998 CMP for the place in order to inform the heritage aspects of Australia Post’s plans for the future use of the building. This includes additions and alterations in order to relocate all of Australia Post’s administrative functions to this central location.
