    For those not sure what can be send via Australia Post, the following Australia Post Dangerous and Prohibited Goods and Packaged Guide may be of interest:

    http://auspost.com.au/media/documents/dangerous-and-prohibited-goods-guide-nov2015.pdf

    Extract of Dangerous and Prohibited Goods and Packing Guide:

    "D3.2 Banknotes and coins

    Banknotes are currency notes that are legal tender in the country of issue. Australian notes of whatever age, currency or denomination are legal tender within Australia.

    Coins are coinage in either Australian or foreign currency and includes coins made from precious metals whether or not such coins have a denomination.

    Australia Post prohibits banknotes or currency notes and coins in:

    the International Post
    all services within Australia, except Registered Post, or a parcel service in conjunction with Extra Cover and Signature on Delivery.

    In Registered Post or parcel services when used in conjunction with Extra Cover and Signature on Delivery within Australia, Australia Post accepts banknotes or coins to a maximum face value of A$200 in any one consignment.

    However, Australia Post accepts no liability for the loss of or damage to any such articles containing banknotes.j

    D3.3 Bullion

    Bullion is lump or bulk metal, pure or impure, refined or unrefined. Bullion includes ingots but excludes manufactured items, such as jewellery.
    Australia Post prohibits bullion in all services."

    Are there any issues at Chullora, NSW?

    I have had a package there since 29th September.

    Posted on 26th September and should have arrived in QLD by Friday 30th.

    What's the weather like down that way?

    Doesn't mean it's IN Chullora, just that that is the last place anyone saw it.
    Could be anywhere ........

    We wherever it is, it is still there, certainly isn't here.

    Still, my inquiry is in progress, according to the email they sent me on 5th October, must be a pretty in-depth inquiry as I haven't heard anything yet. How long does it need to be quiet before they automatically shut the inquiry?

    Delivery from SS member to me a couple of weeks ago. Posted registered post on 15th September from Regional NSW to Outer Metro Melbourne.
    First attempted delivery 8 days later on the 23rd - when I was home - no card left.
    Finally delivered on Monday 26th - 11 days after posting.
    Not sure where "In transit" is but it must be a fun place coz the mail seems to like being there ;P

    I've been receiving items from different states faster than items posted within an hours drive. Still waiting on 2 items which were posted over a week ago. I could have walked to both locations picked them up and walked home in a day. Thankyou aust post your local service is getting better every year.

    I just sent a parcel via courier, Perth to Qld, the courier picked it up from my door. It cost $24.

    AusPost wanted $36 to post the same parcel over the counter!

    I just realised a parcel that I send from Melb Metropolitan on 26th Sept to Brisbane, has a sleep over at NSW for 2 weeks. And the parcel hasn't arrived yet, still in sorting facility in QLD.

    Don't think it's Australia post's fault. There was a borders and customs strike.

    one of my client (another SS member) has a similar issue as you OZCOPPER. the parcel status said "in transit" but the local post office claims they have never received such parcel.

    27/9 - Item leaves Japan with Tracking number
    20/10 - no update on tracking viewed via website - last details were from leaving Japan.
    20/10 - Sender verifies with postal service his end that it got to Customs in Sydney on 29/9
    21/10 - Ring Australia Post to query, they advise it was on its way back to sender.

    Reason for return - not picked up from PO BOX.
    A - Item was addressed to a physical address not a PO BOX.
    B - I personally check PO Box every second day (and am only one to do so) - There was no item or notification for pickup of item.
    C - Why wasnt tracking used from moment item landed in Australia as he paid for this service?
