Australian Delivery Information (International Shipping)

For immediate & free delivery via email, consider sending a gift voucher - there's something for everyone!

Christmas / Holiday Delivery Times:

If your delivery address is within the National overnight Aust Post Express network, it would usually be delivered next business day from our warehouse in Melbourne.

However, due to the busy Christmas period, even deliveries via Aust Post Express Post can occasionally experience delays so we are being cautious with our delivery cut-off times below.

1/ Make sure the products you select show an 'in stock' availability - we have over 4,500 products in stock in our Melbourne warehouse

2/ Order before 11am AEST and your order will generally be dispatched same business day, or next business day.

3/ Pay using a instant payment method (credit card, PayPal [not e-cheque], EFT from your CBA bank account)

4/ Use a shipping address where someone will be in attendance (i.e. office) - otherwise you may need to pick up your parcel from the post office.

5/ Check the delivery time to your destination in the table below - use Express Post if you're unsure!

Australia: Express Post



EXPRESS Post (with Signature on delivery) will deliver your order 'next business day' to all capital cities (Except Darwin and Perth) if you place your order before 11:00am AEST.

For full list please see the 'National Network' section on the Australia Post website. Some major regional centres such as Geelong, Newcastle and the Gold Coast are also given 'next business day' status.

All destinations outside of the 'next business day' network are sent 'fastest possible delivery'.

Please note, Express shipping costs for very large items (i.e. Luggage) must be individually quoted based on your shipping location.

You can get your own delivery estimate from the Aust Post website (Our lodgement postcode is 3026) or please contact customer service with your product number and delivery postcode for a quote. 

At our discretion, Express Post orders may also be sent via Courier, if for example the item is too big to be sent via Aust Post.

Product Statuses:

Product Availability: 'In Stock' & 'Clearance':

The above delivery times are for 'in stock' or 'clearance' items, based on Australia Post estimates.

These products are kept in stock, in our Melbourne warehouse, and will leave the warehouse  within 24 hours (on business days)

To have your order leave the warehouse 'same day' you must place your order before 11am Melbourne time.

Product Availability: 'Back-Order' or 'Pre-Order' or "Special Order":

If an item is not in stock on our website, we will display an estimated time for us to receive this product into our warehouse (for example 7 days). To calculate your expected delivery date, simply add the availability estimate to the shipping times listed above.

'In-stock' + a 'Back Ordered' or "Pre-Ordered' or "Special Order" item on 1 order:

If you place an order which contains an item not in our warehouse (the availability status is 'Back Order' or 'Pre-Order), we will hold your entire order in our warehouse until all items are ready for delivery. If you need an in-stock item sooner, please place a separate order for that item. 

Order Running Late?

If you've placed an order which you haven't received within our estimated delivery times, please contact so we can immediately begin to track & locate your shipment.
