Shipping Policy

All orders are processed within two to three business days (excluding weekends and holidays) after receiving your order confirmation. You will receive another notification when your order has shipped.

Please note that we are based in Albany in regional Western Australia. This can affect the speed of shipping deliveries as we’re not in a metro area. It’s also important to remember that there can be delays beyond our control, such as postal service problems or if we receive a lot of orders at once.

Some of our items, like sculptures and firepits, are too large for Australia Post. In this case, we ask you to contact us at to organise a quote with a carrier that will deliver to your area. We will always do our best to get a good freight quote for you. Luckily, we can often get a good backload rate with a local company if you able to collect from their yard in Perth, too.
