I have had a package there since 29th September.

What's the weather like down that way?

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?

Re: The "Australia Post" Thread

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.

Re: The "Australia Post" Thread

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.

Package arrived this morning, sadly the contents didn't

And nice though the envelope is, it was really the contents I was after.

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

Re: The "Australia Post" Thread

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?

And yet I'm sure their next internal report on complaints will show a drastic reduction.
With the screenshots attached you can see when click to leave feedback or a complaint it leads to a screen with no fields to leave any details.  roll

Re: The "Australia Post" Thread

I think this is the winner ')


An Adelaide couple sorting their mail last week discovered a postcard from Tahiti postmarked 1966.

The faded postcard from the South Pacific island was delivered to the Wattle Park home of Tim and Claire Duffy on Monday but addressed to "Robert Girogio" from "Chris".

In his message written half a century ago, Chris penned that although the weather was humid he was "enjoying myself greatly".




The photograph on the postcard shows the waterfront of Papeete, the capital of French Polynesia.

The late delivery prompted an apology from Australia Post.

"It is clear something went wrong 50 years ago after the postcard was posted in French Polynesia, and we apologise for the inconvenience," a statement from Australia Post said.

"Australia Post takes great pride in the timely, safe and efficient delivery of mail and we are confident that the vast majority of mail and parcels arrive on time."

Re: The "Australia Post" Thread

I think Aus Post are deliberately failing to deliver parcels in an attempt to get us to sign up for post office boxes, My Post, etc.

Twice recently I have had notifications of failed deliveries when I was at home; obviously they have not rung the doorbell but instead pretended no-one was home.  That's called lying to your customers.  The first one was carded, which must take more time than actually attempting delivery.. but today I have received this message by email, and no card has been left:

We have made an attempt to deliver your order
The delivery attempt failed because nobody was present at the delivery address.

If the order is not scheduled for redelivery or picked up within 48 hours, it will be returned to the sender.

You may schedule redelivery by visiting the nearest Australia Post office with the printed shipping invoice mentioned in the letter.

To check on the delivery status of your mailing and download the shipping invoice see the attached file

This is an automatically generated email, please do not reply.

The attachment cannot be opened, so I don't even know which post office to go to, let alone what the item is or when it will be available.  All I can say is, it is lucky I am in town at the moment, or I don't know what would happen to the parcel.  Would they really send it back after 48 hours?  I thought the policy was a week at least..

Last time I was forced to go to the PO to collect a parcel I made sure to tell the woman at the counter "I don't know why the postman didn't ring the doorbell!" and I could tell she was expecting it, and hears it all day long.  Her answer was completely non-commital and unhelpful, along the lines of "Mm-Hmm".

Not bloody good enough!

Lucky for you the attachment didn't open!

Most likely a virus.

Last time I saw an email like that it was Cryptolocker and all my wife's files were encoded and a ransom demanded.

How does the postie know your email address?
Why was no card left?
When was the last time you had to print out an invoice to pick up a letter?
When did it change from 5 days holding to 48 hours?

They use the AusPost logo but the English is usually bad but you are in such a rush to get your mail you ignore the issues and click the button.

Re: The "Australia Post" Thread

Yes you're right.  I wouldn't put such bad service past Aus Post, but it does look fake, and just now I saw the email address (hidden) is some random Yahoo email.

I have had legitimate emails and texts from Aus Post before, but will be more careful in future!  Probably a good thing I pay for the full AVG Inernet Security if I'm that easily fooled!  File is now shredded and full scan underway.

Re: The "Australia Post" Thread

I just completed the on-line survey of performance by Australia Post. I rated them a 0, based upon past performance.
Response: address for survey has been permanently moved or is otherwise unavailable.
That'll teach me - not allowed to give them a zero.

this is Martin place GPO, checked the Australia Square GPO twice today and both were like this.

We should outsource ausptralia post to the Chinese.

Sorry about the rotated pix, but on my iPad it looked correct, when uploaded it looks like this and it won't let's me uplaod a different one.


Interested in a wide variety of low premium legal tender World Silver coins, average conditions is fine.
Will pay a decent premium for a variety different silver coins in single lots, not looking 10, 20 or more of same coins.
Note I tumble these to clean them before I put it in jars for display, so I dont want to buy any rare coins for preservation.

$1 per delivery if correct is what they accepted isn't.
It's like people who bought cheap house next to the new Sydney airport complaining about noise and lowering of house prices
