Australia – Delays in mail processing owing to severe weather conditions

02 March, 2022


Australia Post, asks us to inform other Union member countries and their designated operators that its daily operations are currently suffering disruption, in particular in the states of Queensland and New South Wales, owing to severe storms, heavy rain and flooding across the country. The processing and delivery of inbound and outbound mail items are affected.

As a result of local road closures and access issues, the implementation of safety measures and the closure of several post offices, delivery to certain postcodes is limited in flood-affected areas. The list of affected postcodes areas is updated daily and is available on Australia Post's website at

Australia Post will continue to monitor the evolution of this situation and will provide updates on the impact and management thereof over the coming days.
