Eyre Peninsula residents are being invited to share their personal experiences of the COVID-19 pandemic with a handwritten letter to be saved for future generations.

The "Dear Australia" campaign is being run by Australia Post with selected letters to be placed on the record at the National Archives in Canberra.

Nicole Sheffield from Australia Post says they want a first-hand account of what life is like through these unprecedented times.

"The art of letter writing is pretty fundamental its documented our 210 plus years of history, and so we felt this was such an important time to do that again to document this incredible time in our history in 2020." said Nicole.
