Packaging for sending within Australia or overseas

Whether you’re wanting to send something large or small, irregular-shaped or fragile, we have a packaging solution to suit. And all of our packaging options can be used to send within Australia or overseas.

Sending under 5kg within Australia?

Our Small, Medium, Large and Extra Large packaging options are all eligible for our new If It Packs, It Posts national flat rate postage.

When you use any If It Packs, It Posts packaging option to send an item up to 5kg within Australia, you now get a flat rate based on the size of the packaging you choose – not its weight or its destination. No more guesswork on the postage. Once you know your packaging size and delivery speed, you’ll know your postage cost. Learn more

There are four If It Packs It Posts packaging sizes, each with its own flat rate. Just look for any our packaging options labelled Small, Medium, Large or Extra Large. Simply fit your item in, and you’ll now pay the flat rate for that size. As long as it’s 5kg or under, if you can pack it in, it posts.

Packaging options and pricing

Dimensions for bags, boxes, tubes and wine boxes are internal dimensions and may vary by plus or minus 5mm.
