Due to extended COVID-19 lock downs across the country and high parcel volumes, customers may experience delivery delays in some parts of their state by up to 5-10 business days.
A message from Australia Post:
"Australia Post is an essential service and this means that during COVID-19 restrictions:
Post Offices are allowed to remain open
delivery of letters and parcels continues
Extended COVID-19 restrictions are impacting some of our delivery operations, including air freight. Our delivery network has also been affected by increased online shopping activity, meaning in some areas we are seeing parcel volumes similar to Christmas 2020.
Our posties and delivery drivers will continue to deliver as quickly and safely as they can, but please understand delivery delays may be experienced.

New COVID-19 health and safety regulations apply to all workplaces across Australia.
We’re doing our bit to keep the community safe and prevent the virus spreading – and this has meant changing how we do things. Social distancing within our processing facilities means we can’t always move items as quickly as we would like.
Fewer passenger flights
We usually rely on passenger flights to transport our parcels, but many domestic and international routes are currently suspended. Remaining routes have much lower frequencies."
