Pricing updates

On 4 January 2016, the Basic Postage Rate (BPR) increased from 70 cents to $1. There were also changes to business letter prices as detailed below.

There were no changes to prices of concession stamps or seasonal greeting stamps, which remained at 60 cents and 65 cents respectively.

These changes will allow Australia Post to recover more of the cost of providing the letters service so we can maintain our nationwide Post Office network of over 4,000 Post Offices, and keep our posties delivering to around 11.4 million points across the country.

All prices are GST inclusive, except for External Territories where they are as stated but GST free.
