The foundations for Australia's postal service can be traced back to a single former convict named Isaac Nichols who was appointed to manage all main arriving in the colony of New South Wales. As the colony became further established mail routes were developed, postmen hired, and more formal post offices were established. With the federation of Australia in 1901 the six separate colonial post and telegraph departments combined, creating the "Postmaster General's Department" (PMG). As technology developed the PMG took responsibility for managing the countries post, telecommunications, and broadcasting. Finally in 1975 the postal service we know today was created when PMG was split into two organisations "Australia Post" and "Telecom Australia". (Australia Post, 2017)
