How we assess parcel charges

Domestic parcels

Domestic parcels over 1kg are charged according to their actual weight or cubic weight equivalent, whichever is greater. For parcels up to 1kg, cubic weight is only calculated if the parcel is large in size or irregular or cylindrical in shape.

International parcels

International parcels are charged according to actual weight.

Please note: You do not need to cube Australia Post prepaid or flat rate satchels.
