Don’t forget the letter to Santa

From mid-November, parcel and express post delivery will be seven days a week, up to and including Christmas Eve.

Online shoppers are also catered for, with Australia Post parcel lockers providing 24-hour, seven days a week access for collection of online purchases.

Post offices will also have extended trading hours.

As usual, card-only stamps in Australia and internationally will be five cents cheaper.

So get in early with your Christmas posts.

And children haven’t been forgotten.

Posties will make special trips to the North Pole to deliver more than 100,000 letters to Father Christmas. Children can write to him at North Pole, 9999.
