For destinations within Australia you may currently choose between Parcel Post or Express Post. For international destinations you may choose Air or Express Post International. Our shopping cart checks the total book quantity in your order, calculates the weight including packaging, checks the country (and within Australia the Postcode) of your order's destination and calculates the appropriate shipping and handling charges.
Most orders ship from our Sydney regional warehouse within 1—2 business days. For Parcel Post to Australian addresses, please allow at least a further 4—6 business days for Australia Post's extended (= degraded) delivery service, depending on your location. Some remote areas may take even longer. Choose Express Post if your order is urgent. Please note: Delivery times and postal charges are published on Australia Post's website and printed in their Postal Charges booklet. At our discretion we may alternatively use other delvery service companies eg UPS.
Express Post to Australian addresses usually means delivery within 2 days of us shipping your order.
If you are placing your order by mail, allow ample time for your order & payment to reach us. If you pay by personal cheque, we may hold it for up to 3 business days for it to clear the bank before shipping your order. (This is usually done for large orders only).

If you receive a book which has been damaged, please contact us. We may request that you return the damaged item before a replacement is sent. Please keep all packaging until otherwise instructed.
