Logistics

Australia

We deliver Australia wide and all orders are picked and packed and dispatched the same business day of your order placement if received by 12pm mid-day. Goods picked the same day ship out overnight to major metros like Melbourne, Adelaide and Sydney overnight so if you order by 12 noon you can see your order on your doorstep the next day in 95%++ of our orders to Melbourne, Adelaide and Sydney.

Total delivery costs and estimated delivery times from dispatch depend upon your location.  Delivery costs are able to be calculated before checkout for your convenience. Simply enter your Country, State and Postcode on the Shopping Cart page and it will automatically estimate our delivery charges.

Delivery is charged at cost with no markups and in many cases below our actual cost of shipping your order to you to keep the cost of shipping at a minimum.  In many cases e.g. where we have a Flat Rate and/or FREE SHIPPING over a set purchase value so you can bulk up with as much Malt and Hops and Yeast and Equipment you need to brew like a Pro and your overall shipping cost as a % of your total order value will drop.

If you live in any of the major cities below our shipping is flat rate for major metros and close to home cities and regional towns and table rate for faraway places so you pay no more than the costs below on Road Freight Express (including GST):

  • ACT $14.95 Flat Rate and FREE SHIPPING for purchases over $289.95 incl. GST

Hunter Express  a family owned independent national carrier is available for your choosing and we request if possible for you give an “AUTHORITY TO LEAVE” (ATL) instruction upon checkout in the special instructions so that Hunters drivers can leave your goods at your door or a safe place around the home e.g. down the side of house, back door, behind the bins, down side gate – please specify where to leave.  This will help avoid unnecessary miss deliver and re-deliver charges to us and you our customers.

Australia Post – International Service

Please note international shipping through the postal networks is limited in terms of "dead weight" and "cubic weight".  For information on the limits we refer to you to the following guidance found here: https://auspost.com.au/sending/check-sending-guidelines/size-weight-guidelines

22kg

 

105cm

The formula for working out the girth of your overseas parcel is:

(Width + height) x 2 = girth

For example: Width = 30cm, Height = 20cm 
= (30cm + 20cm) x 2
= 50cm x 2 
= 100cm girth
