  Underwater Post Office
by CandS

Favorite thing: There is an underwater post office at Hideaway Island. I heard that it was the only one in the world - but I also heard that it was the 'first' one in the world so I'm not sure if there are others.

You can get a special 'plastic' postcard which you need to write on with pencil and then you will need to dive down a short distance to post your postcard.

It took around 1.5 weeks to arrive in Australia so get in early... ;) We arrived home before the postcard did...

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
