Norfolk Island Deliveries
While we consider Norfolk Island to be part of Australia and welcome customers from Norfolk Island, most carriers, other than Australia Post, consider Norfolk Island to be an 'international destination' and their delivery charges are priced accordingly. Additionally, they require customs declarations and other paperwork required for international shipping. We have no problem shipping orders to Norfolk Island using Australia Post and we find Australia Post's shipping charges to be reasonable. The only limitation is that Australia Post will not carry parcels that are in excess of 20 kgs or longer than 1.05 meters.
If you do happen to order an item that is heavier or larger than these dimensions, while our website will accept your order we do reserve the right to cancel the order or amend the delivery charge to reflect our actual cost subsequent to the order being placed. If we have to cancel the order we will immediately refund any payments made.
We offer limited items with international shipping to New Zealand, Japan, Singapore and a few others.
Please add the items to the shopping cart and select your delivery country during check-out, if the delivery is available, the system will calculate the shipping fees.
The recipient is the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the destination. Orders shipped outside of Australia may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees levied by the destination country. The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to such import taxes, customs duties, and fees, which are levied once a shipment reaches the recipient's country.
Any additional charges for customs clearance must be fulfilled by the recipient.
Customs policies vary widely; you should contact your local customs office for more information. When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond our original delivery estimates.
Please note, any non-delivered parcels that are returned to us will incur a $10 return fee and order postage cost is non-refundable.
The following items are not eligible for international shipping :
- Items containing batteries
- Toys for under 3 years of age
