Our Australia Finalists

This year a sensational array of stories were submitted from all corners of the country. Six finalists have been selected to inspire the ‘Our Australia’ film series. Congratulations to everyone who shared their tales and stories from our incredible workplace.

Ann Mulawa

Ann is a PDC2 at Warabrook Delivery Facility in New South Wales. Originally born in Scotland, she immigrated to Australia when she was 11 years old. As a PDC2 her job is to assist the PDO’s, team leaders and managers to ensure communication is efficient and everyone has what is needed to fulfill their roles. She enjoys the collaborative environment at Post and loves that everyone works together under pressure to get the job done.

When she’s at home in Newcastle, if she’s not in the garden, she’s still in the mud, entering fitness challenges such as Tough Mudder and The Stampede. In downtime, she loves to spend time with her family and friends, and loves to spoil her new granddaughter and her two pups. She also enjoys the odd weekend getaway to attend shows and concerts.

Glenda Tuyor

Glenda is a PDO at Smeaton Grange Business Hub in New South Wales. She immigrated from the Philippines with her family in 2010 and started working at Australia Post in 2012 as a Box Sorter in Wetherill Park.

Glenda is currently working at the Parcel Hatch of Smeaton Grange and is also under training for the Revenue Protection Section and Retail Counter of Ingleburn Business Hub. She loves the customer service part of her role and is learning as many roles as she can whilst at Ingleburn before the opening of the Smeaton Grange Facility.

When she’s not at work she’s spending time with her family, helping her daughters with their homework and doing creative writing. She also loves going to the beach with her family and spending reflective time at Church.

Tim Power

Tim is a PDO at Alexandria Business Hub in New South Wales. He joined the Post team less than a year ago after a friend recommended the company to him, and he hopes to stay for many years to come. Tim loves that he can keep fit at work, and have a chat with the friendly, down-to-earth people in his community when delivering the mail in Coogee.

He spends his weekends with his wife and two daughters doing coastal walks or relaxing at the local beach in summer. He enjoys staying active through outdoors activities like playing tennis, bike riding, swimming and walking around Centennial Park.

Brenton Stewart

Brenton is a motorcycle PDO at the Sheidow Park Annex Depot, South Australia. He loves riding bikes and has been riding motorcycles his whole adult life, which is why he loves doing it for a living – rain, hail or shine.

Brenton is a proud father of two grown up daughters and he spends every morning walking his dog Eddie.

His passion in life is music. He loves to play music and plays in 3 different bands, one of which is a Jazz band. His Main instrument is the Tuba/Sousaphone but he also plays the Guitar/Banjo and Ukulele.

On weekends he enjoys getting his classic car out for a drive or going out with friends and riding his Harley Davidson around town.

Anthony Brown

Anthony works at the Nepean Delivery Centre in New South Wales as a Nightshift-sorting Officer. For 25 years he’s loved his job at Post, sorting large letter mail for the Kingswood area, and enjoying the opportunities he gets to interact with colleagues whilst he’s at work.

Anthony keeps busy after work too, as an actor with his own Theatre Company “Ruby Productions” that stages shows every second month and multiple events in between. He loves taking care of his pet dogs, cats, duck and fish. With a cast of thousands, there is never a dull moment in Anthony’s week.

When he has downtime, he enjoys reading autobiographies and learning how others deal with life’s challenges and experiences.

Heather Wallace

Heather had such a positive experience with the staff at her local post office that when the opportunity came up to run the local community engagement program and tell the story of how others love their local post offices too, she jumped at it.

In her role she works with more than 60 managers to hold Listening Posts around Australia. Her favourite part of the job is working with the committed Post staff around Australia and hearing the ‘on the ground’ experiences that the community has with the organisation.

After the scene change from Canberra to Melbourne, Heather draws from the city’s spectacular theatres, galleries and museums to be a culture writer for online magazines in both cities.

Recently she has enrolled in a Masters of Cultural Heritage and Museum Studies and would love to curate an exhibition showcasing Australia Post’s heritage items such as historic post offices, uniforms, stamps and delivery bikes.
