Australia Post has lodged a draft notification with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), proposing an increase to the Basic Postage Rate (BPR) for small letters, from $1.20 to $1.50, and to the prices for ordinary large letters, delivered at the regular timetable – to take effect in 2024. 
Australia Post is also planning changes to the pricing of other domestic letter services. 
There is no change to the price of concession stamps, a booklet of five stamps will still cost $3.00, or the seasonal greeting card price, which will remain at $0.65 each. 
The tables below show the proposed pricing to apply in 2024 for domestic letters. Confirmation on these prices and the date of effect will be provided once the regulatory process is finalised. 

Please note, the Acquisition Mail service is excluded from the table as it will be discontinued in January 2024 due to low demand.
