Australia Wildfires

As many of you may know, Australia is experiencing one of their worst seasons of wildfires on record. Beginning in September 2019, the wildfires continue to impact a large area of the country. To date, 25 fatalities have been reported and thousands of homes have been destroyed.

With more than 6.3 million hectares (63,000 sq km) of bush, forest and parks affected, many areas have been evacuated and are inaccessible. As a result, we expect delays for the delivery of many shipments to Australia.

You can stay up-to-date through Australia Post’s service page which provides further details on specific areas that are impacted. We will update you on any changes to mail delivery.

Our hearts and thoughts are with the people of Australia.
