Calvinia has a really big post box. Set on the right as you enter the town it stands six feet high and was originally a water tower. Officially "opened" in 1994, the Post Box is Calvinia's most photographed attraction.

Rumour has it that you can post letters here and your post will receive a special postmark.

Find the Post Box on Hoop Street, which functions as the town’s introduction and has a couple of beautiful old buildings and a restaurant or two as well.
