It is always important to check and double check if the country you are sending goods to will allow those goods to be imported, otherwise your intended recipient may end up waiting far longer to receive their parcel! Check out these restrictions before sending a parcel to Australia.
Various used goods are strictly prohibited for import in Australia. Used Bedding is prohibited, as are used Fruit cartons. In fact, new fruit cartons are also prohibited as they could carry ticks or parasites that once released can have devastating effects on the Australian ecosystem.
Jewellery that has been made from, or contains parts of ivory, or made from an endangered species, such as snake, crocodile or elephant, is strictly prohibited unless accompanied by an Import Permit in relation to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora.
Permission must also be obtained prior to the sending of any parcels, from the Australian Quarantine authorities when sending meat or any other animal products, including powdered milk or milk from concentrate.
Take great care when shipping goods to Australia, and as always, check with your local customs officer to ensure that any goods you plan to ship are okay for importation into the recipient country. Why not use RAND Logistics for all international parcel and large parcel delivery?

Double the Gift
Why not wrap breads, brownies or fudge bars in a decorative pan or baking dish to make it a doubled present? For added protection put the whole thing in an airtight container during shipping. Plus providing a baking dish or a decorative pan may encourage your recipient to try their hand at a few baking recipes in turn.
For all types of cookies, both crisp and moist, it is better to wrap them individually in cling film or waxed paper to preserve freshness. Pack wrapped cookies in tight rows in order to prevent the cookies from moving about and breaking during transit.
