    How to find Australia Post (AusPost) tracking number?

    Looking for your tracking number for an Australia Post (AusPost) shipment? Depending on the service you chose, there are a few different places you can find it.

    If you're the sender, you can usually find your tracking number on the receipt you received after sending your item at a Post Office. For items sent via a tracked service like prepaid satchels, the tracking number can be found on the barcode or removable sticker on your package.

    As the recipient, you'll receive emails from either the retailer or Australia Post tracking confirming your order and providing you with a tracking number and delivery status. To receive these updates, you'll need to provide the e-commerce store with your contact information, and the tracking number will be provided as part of AusPost's free Track Advice service.

    If I lost my Australia Post tracking number for my package, how do I track my item?

    In order to track the delivery progress of your package, you must have your Australia Post tracking number since the volume of packages handled by Australia Post at any given time is substantial. If you have lost your Australia Post package tracking number, regrettably, Australia Post cannot assist you in tracking or tracing your item.

    Australia Mail tracking statuses

    When the Australia Post tracking status says “possible delay”, it indicates that there are certain issues during the delivery process that may cause a delay in your package’s expected delivery date. Some common reasons for such delays could be weather conditions or public emergencies. You can stay updated on any service updates from Australia Post. Another possible reason could be an error from the sender. In either case, your package will still be delivered, but it may take longer than anticipated.

    The tracking status “pending” for your package on Australia Post could mean that your item has not yet been scanned through the system. This might be due to various reasons such as posting the parcel in a street posting box or posting in bulk over the counter, which might cause a delay of up to 48 hours. Alternatively, it could also mean that your parcel has an outdated tracking number that hasn't been active for over two months. In such cases, you should contact the Australia Post customer service team or the retailer for an updated tracking number.

    If the tracking status of your Australia Post parcel says “can’t be delivered”, it suggests that there are some errors or issues due to which Australia Post is unable to deliver your package to the provided address. In this case, you will receive instructions from Australia Post to collect your parcel. Please note that the “can’t be delivered” email notification cannot be turned off in your account settings as it is essential for Australia Post to inform you of such instances.
