can anyone help me please. i know there is a system in Oz where you can post stuff to people and it arrives at the post office and they pick it up from there. (hope that makes sense!)
my Dad is due to arrive in Carins soon and needs me to send him his new credit card....does anyone know the address of the post office i can mail it to????
please help
thanks!

Hi Bec,
If you do the following your father should receive his letter.

LASTNAME, Firstname
Poste Restante
BUNGALOW LPO
SHOP 1164-170 AUMELLER ST
BUNGALOW QLD 4870
AUSTRALIA

I suggest you try and disguise the fact it is a credit card by placing it in a DL envelope that has about 4 A4 pages folded around it.

Your dads name

Both addresses are listed as Post Offices here: http://www.nowwhere.com.au/austpost/postofficelocator/default.aspx (search on Cairns) - although majito's address is closer to the city center and thus probably handier for your father.
