What areas are covered by Free Shipping?

If you live within a popular metro location, then your area is considered metro and you will be offered free shipping. Please note that If you live on the Australian coast, that does not mean you are subject to free shipping.

Our free shipping policy is determined by densely populated metro locations and the viability of distance travelled from our distribution centres. We are constantly expanding our warehousing, so areas covered by free shipping are subject to change.

If you are charged shipping at checkout even though you deem your area to be a metro location, this means that your address has not qualified for free shipping due to the distance that must be travelled to deliver your product from our closest warehouse.

If you live within a metro area and have not received a free shipping option, please message we are happy to clarify shipping manually

Currently the two major exceptions to our free shipping rule, are all areas within Western Australia, Tasmania and the Northern Territory.
