Some things to know

What to bring when collecting your parcel

You'll get an email (and SMS if requested) as soon as your parcel arrives. If you've got the AusPost app, we'll also send a push notification to your mobile.

Just drop by within 10 business days to collect your parcel.

To prove your identity, simply present your MyPost card (or photo ID) and the email or SMS we sent you.

Items that can't be delivered via Parcel Collect

You can have most parcels sent to a participating Post Office, but there are a few things that can't be delivered there:

  • Letters and standard mail that can be delivered to your letterbox
  • Express Post letters
  • Parcels that are heavier than 22kg
  • Parcels that are greater than 105cm in one dimension
  • Parcels where there is a payment required on delivery
  • Parcels that are damaged or unsuitably packaged
  • Parcels delivered by a courier that has chosen not to deliver to a Parcel Collect location
  • Parcels containing perishables

Parcels delivered by other carriers

We'll accept domestic and international parcels from other carriers as long as they've paid to send them via the Australia Post network.

If the carrier chooses not to use our network, they should contact you - or the sender - to arrange alternate delivery of pickup options.

Please note: Australia Post will accept domestic and international parcels from other carriers to our Parcel Collect locations, if those parcels have been lodged by the carriers as Australia Post articles addressed to the recipients' Parcel Collect address. To lodge parcels into our network, carriers must pay Australia Post for the service. StarTrack is a subsidiary of Australia Post, and parcels carried by StarTrack will be accepted for delivery to Parcel Collect locations.

If there are special conditions regarding the postal service you use, these will still need to be observed (e.g. Two forms of photo identification to collect your parcel).
