I believe your two choices are boat (weeks and weeks), or Air Mail. Who's it for?

Go talk to the people at auspost. You'll have to fill out a customs declaration form in order to send it anyway. Though if its a bigger package, fedex is an option.

Its small enough for them to send (unless the third, missing dimension is over 1.1m ) I only ever do them at work, but yer, just go in with the box with the address stuck to it, and they'll help with the rest.

Man what is this pack and send rubbish. Couriers are exxy. Australia post all the way. Just walk in as if you are sending it interstate/locally. There is only one customs declaration little sticker they have to put on after you sign it to say your not sending a bomb. It is no harder then sending a local package .

You are looking at the king of sending and receving.

Bring it to the post office and if the dimensions are fine they will give you a declaration for the package on the dec fill out gift and put amount as whatever it is (i usually dont go past $500 as the person on the other end with end up having to pay money to receive the package) and fill in the rest and sign it statting u know its not full of goods or toxins etc

Once filled out go back to the desk with the declatation and she will weight it and measure it and then give u a price now standard shipping is shipping by ships which takes 4 to 5 weeks (almost always longer) if you wanna pay extra you will have to mention you want it sent by airmail.

Thats it if your package is too big then just go to a local depot for DHL etc and they will give u the form to fill out same thing mark it as a gift so they person isnt charged at the other end
