Australian Shipping

Standard shipping is free for orders $50 or over, or $10 standard shipping for orders under $50. We also offer express shipping which is $15 for orders under $200, and free for orders $200 or more. We currently use two shipping services: Sendle for regular delivery within Australia, they are an excellent service and will take care with your packages. And we use Australia Post for all our express post service and ensure that it is trackable and delivered to you. Sometimes we will use Australia Post for other shipping if Sendle does not deliver to an area, or we feel it will be quicker with Australia Post.

If your item arrives to you damaged or faulty please contact us within 48 hours with photographs of the damage (we need these to claim delivery insurance). If we can replace it with something you are happy with, we will, otherwise we will refund your purchase.
