Latest Advice: Australia Post

Australia Post and Australia Post Express are experiencing delays in deliveries because of the impacts of COVID-19 on their workforce, as well as a high volume of parcels. Please allow for extra time on top of your estimated delivery date when ordering, as there could be delays in certain areas.

A majority of Express Deliveries will arrive within 2 days, but some might take longer, so please keep these factors into consideration before placing an order.

Important Information On the Delivery Of Hampers

Surprise your loved ones with a thoughtful gift hamper delivered right to their door. Standard and Premium Express deliveries are sent by contracted courier companies, so if the recipient isn’t home but there’s no safe place left in sight, the hamper will be directed to the nearest post office for collection. A collection card will be left so they know where to pick up their package. The best part? No additional re-direction costs for you or them.

We do not guarantee next day delivery on the Premium Air-Express Delivery Option. We dispatch all hampers on the same day and almost always they’re delivered within one business day, with limited exceptions only applicable during peak times, which is also outside of our control because of factors such as delays by our shipping companies.

Our delivery companies usually deliver Monday to Friday 9:00 am – 5:00 pm, Australia Wide. They do not accept specified time deliveries.
