We recommend MILTON (51 Douglas Street) for the fastest service – just pull up directly outside our door and pop in to pick up.  

*HEAVY ORDER EXCEPTIONS 

An additional cost may apply for any orders to areas outside the East coast major regional and metropolitan centres for orders over 5kg in weight or large in size.  We will contact you first to approve any additional charge.

Some heavy items may have an extra postage cost that is specified in the description of the product.

Orders placed by 1pm (AEST) are sent by the Aust Post Express service. Occasionally an item has sold out, in which case we will contact you same day.   Only available for orders up to 4kg.  Express Post is not available for bulky/heavy items (such as Bokashi bins, cleaning products and large size items) to areas outside Brisbane unless you wish to pay the total Australia Post Express Post charge.

#INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING FROM $15

Flat rate shipping from $15 is provided for orders up to 2kg. We accept orders from NZ, USA, Canada, UK/Ireland, China, Europe (EU) and other countries. International orders are not subject to sales tax, so most prices are less 10% when purchased from overseas. The final cost of shipping is shown at checkout once you have added your delivery location. 

See international shipping costs at this page > International Postage Cost Calculator.

Delivery times

For our standard service, the estimated delivery times from when an order is placed are:

SE Qld: 2–3 working days.
NSW and ACT: 4–5 working days.
Vic and SA: 5–7 working days.
WA and Tasmanian metro areas: 5–7 working days.
Remote areas: 7–10 working days.

Contactless delivery and authority to leave

Orders are sent by Australia Post e-parcel service or Aramex Fastway Couriers, ensuring that your order can be traced. 

Australia Post is delivering all parcels with contactless delivery, not requiring any signature. By ticking 'Authority to Leave' you take responsibility should the order go missing after it is delivered.

If no-one is at home when Australia Post or the courier delivers, you may receive a 'calling card' explaining where to collect the parcel from the Post Office or local collection point.

If no-one will be at home during the day, having delivered to your work address may be a good idea.

Loss and damage

  • It is your responsibility to advise us should an order delivery be late, incorrect or damaged. Please contact us immediately on shop@biome.com.au. Should an order be lost in transit, damaged or incorrect, we may not send replacement items immediately. Replacement items will be despatched according to our discretion following our investigations.
  • We do not accept liability for any loss or damage arising from items lost, stolen or damaged after delivery has taken place.
  • We will not be held liable for any loss or damage resulting from late delivery.
