ONLINE shoppers and those sending Christmas gifts via the Australia Post sled are running out of time to have their goodies delivered in time for the big day.
Holiday makers should expect to see posties buzzing about the streets even on weekends in the lead up to Christmas as they work around the clock to make sure parcels are under the tree on Christmas Eve.
Christmas cards should be sent by tomorrow, Friday December 15, to make sure they arrive before Christmas Day while priority cards can be delivered within four business days.
If mail is sent within the Express Post network, items should be lodged before 1pm, Thursday December 21.
Evidence the postman / dog relationship is alive & well! Our postman brought Bodhi a Christmas treat today. I’m bursting 😭🤗 12/10 for #PostmanHarry. Our #doggo loves you straight back! #Narraweena @australiapost @SCHMACKOS_AU @dog_rates pic.twitter.com/zMpkXJpvdd— Tania (@tanni_4) December 5, 2017
