Covid Updates and shipping
(Direct from Aus Post website) Get ready early We’re working hard to deliver your letters and parcels as safely and quickly as possible, but delivery for Christmas will take longer this year as we manage the impacts of COVID-19 and more parcels than ever before. Sending as early as you can, and by the dates advised following, means your letters and parcels will have the best chance of arriving in time for Christmas.
We’ll still deliver items sent after these dates as quickly as possible, but it will be difficult to get them to their destinations by Christmas.
Sending within Australia Send Parcel Post by Saturday 12 December 2020. Send Express Post by Saturday 19 December 2020.
