Christmas order dates for deliveries outside Australia
IMPORTANT NOTICE 7th December 2021: Most International destinations (except local New Zealand) are now past the cutoff for Christmas delivery. We’re still sending but they will probably not arrive in time for Christmas.
International lodgement dates vary depending on the destination and the chosen delivery service.
For most countries, the cutoff time is before the end of November for Standard post. For Express it’s mostly between 26th November and 5th December depending on the country.
Please check the country by country guide at Australia Post page and scroll down to your country (listed alphabetically): https://auspost.com.au/business/shipping/christmas-sending-dates
Please note: International Christmas deliveries may be affected by factors beyond our control, like customs delays, overseas postal disruptions, and COVID-19 restrictions in other countries. We recommend sending as early as you can.
