Eurunderee Post Office History
The first Eurunderee Post Office was established in the 1870s. It was located three kilometres north of the Old Post Office Cottage in the home of Henry Lawson’s father, the first postmaster. The ruins of the home can still be visited today.
The Post Office moved to the its current location in the 1920s where it operated until 1961. The cottage also included the Eurunderee telephone exchange, servicing the local community.
As testament to its rich history, the current owners preserved the old post office located at the front of the Old Post Office Cottage.
The Roth family moved to the Mudgee region in the early 1800s, forming a significant part of Mudgee’s early history. Adam Roth established the Craigmoor Vineyard in 1858 now Oatley Vineyard and Restaurant.
The Post Office Cottage was built for the Roth family by George Muller. Edna Riddle, granddaughter of Adam Roth, lived in the cottage until 1999. Her mother had been the postmistress during the period the Post Office was operating.
The house was fully renovated and extended in 2013.
