It's hard to say whether this is a Post Office at the General Store, or a Store at a Post Office, or perhaps a Newsagent, Liquor Store and General Store at a Post Office. This is very much a "One Stop Shop" for the locals and the tourists passing through.
Unable to determine the age of the building, but except for the notices on the Community Notice Board, the brand of beer advertised, the price of that beer, and the headlines on the NT Times it looks very much as it did over ten years ago when I first stopped off to use the toilets 30 metres away.
I couldn't see any Post Boxes, but there is a large "Pigeon Hole" set inside.
Post Office Type: Other
Post Boxes: No
Historical Significance: Yes - Less than 50 years old
Current use: Yes
