It's important to pack your item properly, as we may refuse goods that aren't likely to withstand climate extremes.

Visit an Australia Post retail outlet to select from our packaging range. For hints on packing your item, check our packaging guidelines.


You'll need to complete a customs form (available from retail outlets) if your parcel:

  • contains anything other than written correspondence

  • contains anything worth more than $500
  • weighs more than 500g
