Australia Post Christmas shipping cut-off dates

Christmas is just around the corner! While you might be busy making a list and checking it twice, one important aspect to remember when shopping for Christmas gifts online is the shipping cut-off dates.

To ensure you receive your order before Christmas day and avoid an uncomfortable conversation with a loved one about how their gift didn’t arrive in time, we recommend using the following dates to guide you on the expected arrival of your order. 

If you’re worried you won’t receive your order in time, we recommend choosing Express Post or finding a local stockist and purchasing directly from them. You can find a list of our stockists here. Otherwise, please contact us, and we can search our database to find stores closest to you. Find our contact details here.

Western Australia delivery delays

There are current long delivery delays between the East Coast of Australia and WA due to heavy rain and flooding closing the Sydney-to-Perth rail line. Australia Post estimates it may take up to an additional two weeks for letters and parcels sent via regular letter, priority letter or parcel post to be delivered. We recommend choosing express post for all orders sent to Western Australia.
