Send a Parcel to Australia

Home to kangaroos, Kylie Minogue and some of the nicest coastlines on the planet, Australia is loved all over the world. Often referred to as 'down under' because of how far it is from the United Kingdom, you might think sending parcels there would be difficult. In fact, we have made deliveries to Australia as quick and straightforward as they always should have been!

High quality, low-cost shipping to Australia

Our quick quote tool above will show you that sending a parcel to Australia doesn't have to be expensive. A lower fee shouldn't equal a lower quality of service, either. This is why we're happy to offer the same services of the huge companies you know and trust like Landmark, Collect Plus and more - but at a fraction of the price.

We can do this because Postage Supermarket has a special partner status with those brands, meaning we can save you up to 80% on your delivery fees. Same process, same quality, lower price.

Delivery services you can trust

Our hands-on approach means that we can help with the paperwork when necessary, while our support team has years of experience to assist when answering any questions you may have about the process.

We've also worked hard to make a service this large as flexible as possible. This means that we can provide deliveries either straight to someone's door, or to a drop off point if they're often out of their home. To help you with that peace of mind even more, we even offer £50 cover for free with most of our deals.

How to address a package to Australia

Different countries have their own expectations for how their deliveries should be addressed, and Australia is no different. Below is a breakdown of how your package should be addressed:

- FIRST LINE: The name of the recipient (Ms Laura Clarke)

- SECOND LINE: Home number and street address (24 Surrey Road). If they live in a building complex, it would need to be addressed like: (Floor 5, 32 Surrey Road)

- THIRD LINE: The name of the town, city or suburb followed by their state name as an abbreviation and their four-digit postcode - all in capitals (BRISBANE QLD 4034)

- FOURTH LINE: The name of the country (AUSTRALIA)

The cheapest way to send a parcel to Australia

If delivery time is not a priority, then you can save a lot of money when sending a parcel to Australia. This means that if you plan ahead and book your delivery for two weeks before you want it to arrive as opposed to two days before, you can make massive savings. If speed is a priority, then several other services will get your delivery to Australia faster.
