I was just at Post Office Bay May 14, 2019. Fortunately, the site has been cleaned up considerably since the photos were taken for this article. There is a new barrel and virtually all the debris shown in the photos is now gone.

As an aside, the area just above the “post office” was used as a fish preservation facility up until the 1970s, when the Nation Park was formed and operations ceased. A few remnants of that facility (concrete footings, the rusty remains of steel tanks, etc.) still exist. All-in-all visiting Post Office Bay is a very pleasant experience.
