Coronavirus: Network impacts and delivery delays

Our priority at Australia Post, is to protect our people, customers and community so we can continue to serve Australians both during, and after, the current Coronavirus pandemic.

We’re doing everything possible to keep delivering for Australia. Our Post Offices remain open and our posties and drivers are still out delivering each and every day.

Customers can be assured they will continue to be able to send and receive parcels and mail, pay bills and use Bank@Post during this time.

There are some service impacts that have resulted in some delays. For the latest information, please visit our dedicated information page.
