This includes Queensland, South Australia and Tasmania. I'm seeing a lot of tracking evidence that carriers are working hard to deliver parcels quickly, with...

Final Update Thursday 17th December. I am sending all non-natural orders up to and including Christmas Eve. Natural bird toys to be sent within south east Queensland may be made and sent on 21st and 22nd December.
