I can't seem to find much information on the place other than what mcgooley showed me on: https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/result?q=ACACIA+PLATEAU&l-category=Article&l-decade=193
Can anyone enlighten me on anything regarding Acacia Plateau ?

1/6d was the very heavily used half ounce air rate to UK, and as this is presumably where you bought it, mystery solved - as clerks often used 2 stamps!manfaefife wrote:Some great info guys thank you, though it does seem to have been a very small "town" or Village.
Only taking the stamp into account with it being a 1/- would suggest whatever it was on must have been likely a packet rather than a letter?
The strike also is quite sharp or at least there's plenty ink on the cancel which suggests the ink pad wasn't used a lot, though as the timing suggests this seems to be a very early date for Acacia Plateau, as a Post Office cancel.

I think it all rests on djbb.

You will not find the house or post office they went years ago. My grandmother Florence Tyler had a very large farmhouse more or less 2 houses joined together and in the middle was the Post Office....

My first post here, and I know the thread is a little old, but the thread caught my attention because I live in Lower Acacia Creek right next to the plateau. Can I help at all? I own the old cafe and petrol and my friend owns the post office of Lower Acacia Creek. I am currentLy writing a book on the area as well. To celebrate 20 years here.
