The argentinean post does something similar.

If you go to the post office in Argentina you can opt for a "fast" service
where they scan your mail, send it by email to the nearest post office to
the receptor, print it there and send as normal mail again. To just send by
email to the recipient should be easy enought to implement I guess.

I hav eno idea if Australia post does offer this, but if they do, I think
they would be able to provide just to email...?
