THE future of the Cobdogla post
office is unknown after its doors
closed last Friday.
The post office, which operat-
ed out of the former Cobby Store,
will remain shut until an alterna-
tive Cobdogla business can take
on the service.
In a statement to the Murray
Pioneer, an Australia Post
spokesperson said options to
keep the service open were cur-
rently being explored.
“Australia Post is absolutely
committed to ensuring con-
tinuity of postal services in the
Cobdogla community and (is)
currently in discussions with a
local business operator to resume
services,” the spokesperson said.
“In the interim all post office
box mail and carded parcels are
now available for collection at the
Barmera post office.
“Australia Post sincerely apol-
ogises for any inconvenience this
may cause and looks forward to
confirming the new arrangements
as soon as possible.”
Cobdogla resident Rosemary
Gower said while it was disap-
pointing to see the post office
close, she was confident it would
reopen before long.
“It doesn’t look like we’ll lose
it, it just looks like we’ll be with-
out it for a little while,” she said.
“I’m sure we’re going to get a
replacement, so I’m not too con-
“We have to have a post office.
It’s not convenient to have to go
to Barmera to pick up your post.”
Member for Chaffey Tim
Whetstone said Australia Post
informed him of the facility’s
closure early this week.
“I’m hopeful the post office
services will resume as soon as
possible as these services are
highly valued by the local com-
munity,” he said.
The Barmera Post Office is
located at 1 Barwell Avenue,
Barmera, and operates 9am to
5pm from Monday to Friday.
Cobdogla resident Rosemary Gower says the town “has to have” a post office after it unexpectedly closed
last Friday. Australia Post has reassured locals it is committed to reopening the Cobdogla service.
