Christmas Delivery Guide

Christmas Delivery Guide


Deliveries during the holiday season can sometimes take longer than usual, because the parcel routes are much busier. This year in particular, Christmas Day falls on a Monday, so we lose the weekend before as well. 

Below are the recommended dates we advise you to order by to best ensure a delivery before or by Christmas Day.  


Melbourne and Regional VIC

For Melbourne Metro, order by Tuesday 19 December.  

Orders for Regional Victoria placed after 14 December may not arrive in time for Christmas.


Sydney, Adelaide, Canberra, Brisbane Metro

Standard shipping may not arrive in time for Christmas. Express shipping available until 19 December.


Perth, Darwin Metro and Tasmania

Standard shipping is now closed. Express shipping is available until Monday 18 December 10am.


Regional deliveries (non-VIC)

Standard shipping is now closed. Last Express orders should be placed by 14 December 10am.


The above information is a guideline only and is subject to change as a result of unforeseen incidents and circumstances that are beyond our control, but we promise we'll do our darn best to get your orders to you in time for the holidays! Remember that around this time of year all deliveries seem to go around via the North Pole so order sooner rather than later not to be disappointed.

We also know that couriers can be particularly un-careful with those boxes this time of year so we'll be using a bit more protection than usual.
