What can I ship to Australia?
Whether you’re an eBay seller who has sold an item to someone in Brisbane, or you’re a business with a customer in Sydney, Parcel Monkey can help you ship a wide range of goods. From large and heavy items to clothes and vinyl records. As long as it’s not prohibited by Australia Customs or our carriers, we can ship it.
However, Australia does have some strict rules regarding imports, which apply to packages sent to the country both by courier and post.
Even items which are allowed into the country are subject to close inspection and quarantine, especially any form of agricultural product. Plants and soil are strictly prohibited and that includes items that come into contact with soil, like used outdoor sports clothing/equipment, used gardening equipment or outdoor furniture.
The Australian Border Force provides a very comprehensive guide on what items can be imported to Australia, so before you send your package, please check this to avoid unnecessary delays.
