General Post Office Brisbane
261 Queen Street, Brisbane, QLD 4000
The General Post Office was opened in September 1872. The original GPO building was designed by colonial architect Francis Drummond Greville Stanley with an Italianate influence.
The complex was established to meet the increasing communications needs of the colony of Queensland. Helidon freestone is used throughout the building, particularly on the facade, columns and arcades.
Over the years the complex was extended, but the main original components remain intact.
