It's a play on words. "Listening post" generally means a military installation that tries to pick up and intercept enemy communications. Here they're using it to mean something that picks up customer feedback. Because it's Australia Post who is Listening to customers they've called it their Listening Post.

"Listening post" appears to be something Australia Post have re-purposed, probably because it contains the word post.  It's usually used for spying.

 

Some other expressions that are similar:

 

"focus group" - something marketers use as a small group to of people who give feedback on a product, service, advertisement etc - while it is early development.

 

"community feedback session" or "community town hall" - a more open version of a focus group where anyone can show up and give feedback.

 

I this case it seems they are asking for feedback from the operators of the individual post offices (I think they operate on a franchise style model).

Deleted a bunch of off-topic posts.

 

Remember folks, you don't have to reply to every topic, and if you don't have anything constructive to add you're better off just ignoring the thread and moving on - especially if you are posting without bothering to read/understand what people are talking about.
