This Licensed Post Office provides all Australia Post Services available to Licensed Post Offices including: general banking, money orders, Western Union, ID – checks & bill payment etc. The yearly revenues have a very secure element with over 36% coming from the PO Box leases & mail management fees.

Opportunities: The local population is increasing & there is also strong growth due to improving tourist numbers leading to more people patronising the Post Office. Other local retailers have a solid presence in the town as well as at the renowned Sunday markets. The town produces solid internet sales which offer the opportunity to expand account customers, product lines & sales. There is also the scope to introduce other product lines. Significant increases with handling of parcels has occurred in recent years. Other increases in commission payments to the LPO’s are being negotiated at the moment, to be implemented and effective within the next 12 months at the very latest. Australia Post also continues to consolidate & further invest in the domestic & international parcel supply chains.

Tourism: Port Douglas is also in line to benefit from the current resurgence in local & international tourism as well as the predicted boom in tourism from China & other Asian countries. Recently the Hong Kong & Shanghai Bank off the back of the Tourism 2020 Report indicated that Mainland Chinese could make up 20% of all short term arrivals, who were expected to spend an estimated $13b which is substantially above the figure of $9.0b predicted in 2013 when the report was originally commissioned & released. The town’s population markedly increases during Australian school holiday periods, the peak international tourist season & in winter as visitors look to escape the southern ‘climate’. With the projected strengthening in tourism numbers, a lower Aussie dollar as well as projected relative increases in Chinese / Asian tourism this business is only going to expand.

Wilston is home to many professionals, including many medical professionals, due to its inner-city location, proximity to the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital and views of the city that are available from more elevated streets.

In recent years, the area has been transformed by the revamping of Kedron Brook Road, an early precursor to the City Council’s urban renewal process that was to rollout across much of inner Brisbane. This has seen a vibrant hub of al-fresco dining evolve, which in turn has increased the popularity of the area and led to a significant increase in the cost of housing in recent years. There are two schools in the area, Wilston State School and St Columba’s Primary. Wilston railway station provides access to regular Queensland Rail City network services to Ferny Grove, Brisbane and Beenleigh.
