And to make things worse, Australia Post have just announced a 2.5% increase to their charges, excerpt below from the email I just got:

Domestic and International standard retail rate changes^
Over the last year we've worked hard to support customers with the pressures of their sometimes rapidly changing businesses. Rising costs over the period however mean that, effective 1 March 2021, we'll be raising our standard retail rates for domestic parcels and changing our standard retail rates for international parcels.


We'll be introducing a 2.5% price increase across our retail domestic parcel products; which includes Parcel Post, Express Post and Return Paid items.

International outbound parcel and letter prices will also change, which will mean a price reduction in some instances and an increase in others.

Yes, seem to be .  I ordered a back scene from the UK (New Modellers Shop), it was dispatched on the 19th of Jan, and it arrived here all the way down to Tassie yesterday.  Didn't think that was too bad actually.  And to add to this the item was extremely well wrapped & was in perfect condition.  Good work from this company.

A small envelope size parcel from the UK arrived yesterday, post marked 14th December, seems no logic with clearing the back log.

Small parcel sent to Canada returned marked. “ not accepted my Canada Post”

Seems only larger parcels sent as Courier are being accepted at present.
