Yes, we know it’s very early to mention the “C” word, Christmas, but this year due to another “C” word – COVID19, Australia Post is urging its customers to start sending Christmas mail early.
Who knows when all state borders will open and there will be no international travel for a while, so it could be a NSW Christmas for many.
A COVID Christmas is likely to involve sending presents rather than hand-delivering them.
Send your gifts early
Australia Post has one simple message – send your gifts early.
Lane Cove Post Office
The Lane Cove Post office opening hours are here. The Lane Cove Post Office and Greenwich Post Office is open on a Saturday morning.
Many Lane Cove residents have told us that our Lane Cove Tea Towels are the ideal gift to send overseas to a loved one who may be missing Lane Cove. They are easy to send, and you don’t need to mortgage the house to pay for postage. Our Tea Towels are available at Be.U Natural in the Lane Cove Arcade.
Receiving International Deliveries
Australia Post continues to receive and deliver mail and parcels from international postal operators, but there are delays from most destinations.
Check the Australia Post website regularly for the most up-to-date Christmas advice, and see their Coronavirus impacts page for updates on delays.
Australian Deadlines for Pre Christmas Delivery
Australia Post is finalising their domestic cut-off dates for Parcel Post and Express Post. As Christmas draws closer, they will update our website with the dates.
If you’re sending gifts within Australia, get them in the post as early as possible so they can arrive in time for Christmas Day.

Lane Cove Council Election Survey – Closing Soon
The Lane Cove Council elections will be held this year. We would like your feedback on what issues candidates should be talking about and also if you want us to hold a zoom candidates meeting. We held a forum last time, and it was packed, and residents got to ask some excellent questions.
Help us by filling out this survey, and you could go into the draw to win a $50 Lane Cove Gift Card.
