REGULAR DELIVERY (Parcel Post): Delivery time is dependent on location. Parcels can be tracked online. Australia Post does not guarantee delivery times for regular deliveries, any times quoted will be approximate and can change due to varying circumstances.

EXPRESS POST: Express post is shipping only, this will not guarantee the same day despatch of orders unless prior arrangements have been made, all stock is available, and payment received. However if all items are available we will endeavour to ship the same day for orders placed before 12 noon EST (business days only). You must be in a express post area for overnight delivery, other areas will be fastest possible delivery between these locations (next business day delivery cannot be guaranteed outside the Express Post Network). Parcels can be tracked online.
