History

Flowerdale Post Office opened on 1 March 1891 and closed in 1981.

The Preolenna line was a railway line which extended from the Flowerdale junction, to as far as Maweena, a small distance past Preolenna. It was first opened in 1917 but was soon closed in 1931 - in one of its annual reports, the TGR operators had described the traffic along the route as "infintecimal".
