It could take even longer to receive your letters

Tags: mail, aus post, australia post

If you’re planning on sending any letters in 2016 you better make sure you allow some extra time for them to arrive, because Australia Post is making some big changes to their service.


From January 4 regular post will take up to six days to arrive depending where in Australia you are sending it, and the price of a stamp will increase to $1.

Priority post will take between 1-4 days to arrive, and will cost $1.50.

The Australia Post website says, “It’s about making sure we have a sustainable Post Office network and letters service, so we can continue to grow in the areas you need us most — like delivering parcels and trusted services.”

They’ve also put together a video that explains all the changes.
