It has been almost 11 years since Carol and Jim Brown started working behind the counter and delivering mail, respectively, for Evandale Post Office.
Moving from Western Australia in 2008 for the opportunity, the couple are ready for something new and are selling the business and its Victorian residence.
"We have been travelling to Tasmania since 2000 to decide if we would move," Mr Brown said.
"We saw the ad for the post office and on our next trip we chatted with the licensee and said we would be back."
The Browns took up residence in the home and business in October 2008, with Mr Brown picking up the 153-kilometre rural mail run and Mrs Brown studying for a Certificate II in Retail Operations.
"Now it's 10 years, seven months and a few days later," he said.
In that time they have become an integral part of the Evandale community, with farmers expecting machinery parts often telling Mr Brown to "just drop it over the fence, Jim".
"I know all the mail boxes and all the people who live there."
Being a postman was a change for Jim Brown, a character who served in the navy, was a musician and has the dubious honour of being the prison guard who took Alan Bond to jail.
Built in 1898 and operating as a post office ever since, the property has been attracting attention since agent Peter Dehnert put up the sign.
Evandale post office will be auctioned on site on Saturday, May 25, at 12pm.
