TomO (The Outback Mailman)

Tom, The Outback Mailman

Remote communities in Outback Australia often rely on the goodwill of others to deliver mail and much needed goods and equipment.

 Marree is the town at the start of the Birdsville Track from which the famous Outback Postman, Tom Kruse, headed off on his trip along the Track to deliver mail to the many Stations that dot the area.

And at the post office and refueling stop, we were asked to deliver some items along the Track.

So we had our own Tom, the Outback Mailman delivering mail to the Mungerannie Hotel.

Good work TomO, I reckon Tom would be pleased!

    It’s probably still more efficient than Royal Mail 🙂
