Most Weird and wonderful Letter boxes

Submitted: Tuesday, Mar 17, 2009 at 18:55

Sir Kev & Darkie

What is the most weird and wonderful Letter Box you have seen on your travels??

Just before Christmas there was a heap of letter boxes between Roma and St George decorated for the silly season.

I have seen kegs, fridges, microwave ovens etc used

This one must make the Postie laugh when he delivers the mail.

Post pics of your best letter box that you have seen.

Hi there Kev, how you been? I havent got a picture, but a few years ago on our travels we spotted a mail box belonging to a property, it was on a back road. Their mail box was a fully fledged toilet bowl complete with lid but minus the cistern! They had it mounted on a post at a 90 degree angle & it looked pretty good. Just the shot I reckon for all the junk mail!! Cheers.

Good post Sir Kev,

Here's a couple from my travels in SA.


This one was on Kangaroo Island somewhere....near Parndana I think from memory.




This one was on the Lock to Elliston Road.
