Delivery and Returns

Delivery in Australia

We pack and post all items from North Fitzroy, Victoria. Most orders will be posted within 1-3 business days, we’ll contact you if any delays are anticipated.

  • For super cheap options we use Australia Post letters for small deliveries with no tracking service available.
  • For larger deliveries, or really special items, we use courier service Sendle, which automatically offers tracking.
  • If a parcel does go missing enroute we will do our best to retrieve it, but cannot replace items that have been sent without tracking.
  • If you are in a hurry then you can put your mind at rest by choosing one of the Australia Post Express Post options that also include tracking.
  • And, finally, we offer Free delivery with tracking for all orders over $100!!

Our shipping calculator at the cart and checkout sections should sort you out with the best possible options, but if you have any problems or questions please feel free to contact us.

If your item has shipped and you haven’t received it within 3 weeks please email us and we will do our darnedest to track it down.

And Sendle has this information:

Sendle uses a road-delivery network that is efficient and speedy. Each order gets a unique delivery estimate that is shared with your customers to help them keep track too.

In general, same-city deliveries arrive overnight and deliveries to nearby cities within 2-3 days. Though very speedy, Sendle does not currently offer an express or guaranteed overnight delivery service.


We accept returns on most items.
