On Sunday 16th May 2021 at 11.30am, Tea Tree Gully Heritage Museum will hold a re-created opening ceremony of the Tea Tree Gully Post Office & Telegraph Station which took place in 1880.

The below was reported in an article about the day in The S.A. Register on Friday 21 May 1880.

Ongoing celebrations at the Museum will continue throughout the day with food and drinks available.

“Amid much fanfare Mr. W. Haines declared the Post Office open for business. Three cheers were given, and congratulatory messages read. In consequence of the formal opening of a Post-Office and telegraph station in the township, and the opening of the main road between Teatree Gully and Anstey’s Hill.  The township was decorated with bunting and a triumphal arch, bearing the words “Welcome to Teatree Gully” was erected across the main road leading into the township.”

The N.E. Radio Club will help young visitors to send a morse code message and listen to the two-way radio. Post a letter in the original letterbox, design a stamp, see interesting displays and other activities that children can enjoy.
