General Post Office in Hobart, Australia

The handsome, Edwardian Baroque style of the General Post Office was created by Alan Cameron Walker, a prolific 19th century architect who designed many of Hobart’s landmarks. In 1906, a year after it became operational, the Queen Victoria Clock Tower was added thanks to £1,465 in public donations. The chimes are similar to Big Ben at the Palace of Westminster. GPO is located along Macquarie Street, the main thoroughfare through Hobart’s Central Business District and a showcase for some of the city’s finest Georgian architecture.
