This great southern land is home to many wondrous and magical things. Quokkas, Vegemite, the Sydney Opera House, and Russell Crowe (sorry, New Zealand) to name but a few.
Unfortunately, it's also home to some pretty bastardly things too. Spiders, snakes, more spiders, the rest of the spiders - and of course - criminally high postage rates to and from Australia. But more on that below!
Has your order still not arrived? Check the delivery time guidelines below, then contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any concerns.
Shipping rates are calculated on the total weight of products in your order, and are constantly tweaked to remain as close to the actual postage cost as possible. Our policy is to not charge any extra for shipping - we aim to charge you exactly what we pay to Australia Post to ship your order, and the cost of shipping materials.
From time to time there may be a small discrepancy between the shipping cost, and the cost of the postage paid, due to circumstances outside our control. If we discover that the actual shipping cost is significantly less than the shipping charged on your order, we will contact you and process a refund for the difference.

Tracked and express shipping options
Tracked shipping options are provided during the checkout procedure, where available. You'll notice that these options are often obscenely expensive for overseas orders, which is unfortunately a side effect of living on a giant island in the middle of nowhere.
At our discretion, we may request that an overseas customer pay additional for tracked shipping for high value orders. This is for your protection and ours, and to ensure that your order reaches you safely. Collected Companies retains the right to cancel and refund orders that we consider high-risk, but this won't be done before contacting the purchaser first.
