    The Postmaster-General (P.M.G.), The Hon. W. Webster, instigated the Australia Postal Institute (A.P.I.) through the Australian Parliament in 1918, as an arm of the PMG, for staff education (representing 75% of its total responsibility) and for recreational functions for P.M.G staff during work breaks and after working hours (direct family included). A very important responsibility for the A.P.I. at that time was the rehabilitation of Returning Service personal back into the PMG workforce (at all levels) from the A.D.F.

    The P.M.G located the API Headquarters at their Melbourne headquarters with the goal to establish A.P.I. State Branch in each Australian State, as suitable accommodation became available. The first A.P.I. State Branch to be opened was in Victoria on the 18th November 1918 when the P.M.G. Mr. Webster opened the Branch at the Melbourne G.P.O., with API branches being established in all States by 192X (N.S.W. 1921, South Australia (and N.T.). West Australia, Queensland and Tasmania )

    The A.P.I objectives were for the well being of all postal servants in their Career advancements including personal education and Recreational needs. Training was provided at the Institute training centres and in the case of country and interstate students, by correspondence courses.

    On the introduction of Telecom and the Australia Post Commissions in 1975 (replacing the P.M.G) the name of the A.P.I. was changed from Australia Postal Institute to Australia Pos-tel Institute with a changed role to being a Telecom and the Australia Post Staff Social organisation only, During the 1990s early 2000s A.P.I. became a totally stand alone organisation with no official links with Telstra or Australia Post.

    At the time when the Electric Telegraph introduced into the colonies of Australia, The Colonies established the Electric Telegraph Department (E.T.D) under each Colonies Public Works Department that remained in place until 1869 to about 1880, when the responsibilities for each E.T.D. were transferred from the Colonies Works Department to their Postmaster General as Ministerial administrator to form in each colony as the Postmaster General (P.M.G.) Electric Telegraph Department (be it PMG ETD N.S.W, Vic., Qld., Tas., S.A., W.A. or N.Z.).

    When the Electric Telegraph Department (ETD), was transferred to the Postmaster General as Ministerial administrator, it was a service quite distinct from the Post Office, and was not under the secretary to the Postal Department, which is highlighted in many cities and towns in that very few Telegraph Offices and Post-Offices with internal connection and very often they had separate buildings. Under the P.M.G. at that time there were three separate individual heads within the PMG, each permanent, each owing no obedience or allegiance to the other, only than to the Minister.

    The transition from the various Works Departments occurred over a period of years from 1869 with South Australia, then Victoria 1870, Queensland 1880 and New South Wales 1893. In the Colony of N.S.W. "Colonel" E. C. Cracknell was the Director of E.T.D. N.S.W. from 1857 to 1872 and then from 1872 to 1893 as Superintendent of Electric Telegraph when N.S.W. entered into a "transition phase" reporting to the N.S.W.Postmaster General. On the death in 1893 of E. C. Cracknell a full amalgamation was then achieved in N.S.W. by an act of Parliament.

    The A.P.I. (Australian Postal Institute) was initiated by the PMG in 1918 (from 1975 known as the Australian Post-tel Institute.
    The PMG was commissioned on Federation

    The Postmaster-General's Department (P.M.G.) of Australia was created in 1901 with Federation taking control over all six Colonies (States) Postal and Telegraphic services within Australia to form the national Postal and Telegraphic services within Australia. The Department was administered by the Postmaster-General.

    In its first 25 years, the department grew from 6,000 to 10,000 offices and from 18,000 to 47,000 staff. Earnings grew from £2.4 million to £10 million per annum.

    In mid-1975 the department was disaggregated into the Australian Telecommunications Commission (trading as Telecom Australia) and the Australian Postal Commission (trading as Australia Post). The PMG also controlled radio and television broadcast licensing. Telecom Australia changed its name to Telstra in 1995 and has since been privatised.

    The transition from E.T.D to P.M.G E.T.D. N.S.W. progressed slowly until Cracknell's death in 1893 when an Act of Parliament was introduced to complete the transition to PMG ETD in the Colony of N.S.W.
