General Information

As our customer, you must ensure that the correct delivery address is entered at checkout, as parcels that are returned to City Beach as undeliverable may incur a re-dispatch fee and will be sent back out as regular mail. Freight charges paid for the original dispatch are not refundable.

City Beach does not ship internationally.

Bulky & Flammable Goods

  • Large items include, but are not limited to, travel bags, surfboards, body boards and cruiser skateboards, and will be shipped by Express Road Service with TNT couriers.

  • Flammable goods include, but are not limited to, perfumes, fragrances, colognes & aerosols, and they are classed as Dangerous Goods. We can only deliver these items to mainland Australia as all deliveries must travel via road freight. Dangerous goods (DGs) are items that can cause problems during transportation, i.e. explosive, flammable or corrosive. Safety regulations prohibit many DGs from being shipped by air. City Beach does not offer Express Delivery for parcels containing DGs as they may be air transported, however we can deliver them by Express Road Service (TNT).

  • These orders cannot be sent to a PO Box address, it must be a residential or business address with the business name included in order. You will be notified via email with your TNT tracking number. Please see below for shipping charges applied to bulky and flammable items.

  • The estimated delivery date for bulky and flammable items depends on your delivery address, and is calculated from the time you receive the shipping confirmation email, not from the time the order was placed.

  • The following are estimates only, and are based on information provided by TNT couriers:

    • - Express road service - 3 to 10 business days for metro areas.

      - Please allow up to 17 business days for rural areas.

      - For all TNT order inquiries please contact TNT directly on 131150.

  • If the Goods are delivered by courier, your parcel will be delivered during normal business hours.

  • Upon delivery, the goods must be signed for. If a signature cannot be obtained at the time of delivery, a card will be left informing you of how to collect the parcel during normal business hours.

    • Same Day Delivery – we offer same day delivery if your order is placed before 11am AEST (weekdays with delivery expected between 1pm - 4pm AEST on the same day). Only available for selected Brisbane Metro areas. If your order is placed after 11am AEST Same Day Delivery will not be available.

  • Please allow for a further 3 business days (in addition to the above) for delivery to remote areas as an estimate only.

  • Please note, delays may occur around Christmas, Easter and public holidays. Remote deliveries are subject to local transport schedules and may encounter extended delays. Please note that that there are limitations on all courier networks and some remote delivery addresses will not be serviced door-to-door. In these cases, the couriers will deliver to a local depot or Australia Post office and you will be contacted to collect your goods. Some remote locations such as islands can only be accessed by boat therefore normal shipping times do not apply.

  • The delivery dates are estimates only. City Beach will do all that it can to ensure delivery within the estimated dates, but factors such as public holidays and peak delivery times may not allow this to always be possible. Please note that while Australia Post provides a reliable national service, delivery delays can occur for a variety of reasons. If you are experiencing a longer than usual delay, please first enquire about your missing package at your local post office.

  • City Beach reserves the right not to accept an order, or having accepted an order, to cancel an order if it cannot supply the goods within the order.

  • Any damaged or lost orders are subject to an investigation carried out by the courier company. This investigation can take up to 10 business days and we must allow the courier company to complete their investigation before we can take any further action into the whereabouts of the parcel.
