Sending Parcels to Australia?

If you've got a parcel that needs to make a trip down under, then Hermes are here to help – whether you're shipping to Perth, Sydney, or anywhere in between.

When you send a parcel to Australia, the process is the same as our domestic services. You can get started with a quote for our Australian courier services today, in just a few clicks.

How quickly will your parcel get there?

As with all international deliveries through Hermes, shipping to Australia takes an estimated three to seven working days. Your parcel could potentially make its way to the other side of the world as quickly as if it was headed to the other side of the country – but it's always best to allow an extra day or two for international delivery. Please note that we cannot guarantee a specific delivery date for any international deliveries.

How much will it cost?

The cost of shipping to Australia will depend on the size, weight, and number of parcels that you're sending. Destination doesn't matter – you get the same price for an address in Queensland as New South Wales.

Sending one small parcel to Australia can cost as little as £28.09 (inc. VAT), but for a more specific quote for shipments of any size, click here to use our Quick Quote tool.

What rules are there for sending a parcel to Australia?

Sending a parcel to Australia requires some extra documentation compared to shipping domestically in the UK, or to elsewhere in the EU. You can find links to the necessary forms and some details on what to include below:

If your parcel is worth £270 or less, then you'll need to fill out a CN22 form with a short description of the package's contents, weight and value.

If your parcel is worth over £270, then you'll need to fill out a CN23 form. This is a slightly longer form, and requires the sender and receiver's address, as well any reference numbers, additional comments, and commercial details.

We can also provide these forms for you at the checkout, along with your normal shipping label, if they are needed.

Just like every other country in the world, Australia has its own rules on what you can and can't send. To be on the safe side, check our restricted list.
