As we will be on the move constantly for the next 10 months, I wondered how we would get deliveries sent to us. Not so difficult if you are staying in one spot for a reasonable length of time, but trickier if you only stay for 1 or 2 nights and keep on the move.
I did a bit of research and found that Australia Post offers a ‘MyPost’ service. You need to sign up for an account and then add the Post Office you want to collect your parcel from to your list of Post Offices. They will then provide you with a unique reference number and the address of the Post Office to get your items sent to. They will also notify you when your parcel arrives and hold it for 10 days. We used this service for the first time on our trip and collected our parcel from the Ceduna Post Office. All went smoothly and it is a great way to be able to let people or online orders know where to deliver your items along your path.
You can even change the delivery address while the parcel is in transit, depending on how close the item is for delivery. This would be handy if you get delayed somewhere or your plans change. You can also track where your parcel is in transit.
Nice work Australia Post!
