Australia Post :- Find a missing item

If you are trying to find a missing or late mail item, there are a few things you can check in the first instance.

  • Tracking:- If the article was sent using a tracked service, use our track your item tool to check its status.
  • Address details:- Check the address details with the sender to make sure the item was correctly addressed.
  • Card received:- Check if an ‘Item Awaiting Collection’ or ‘Safe Drop’ card has been left in the letterbox or under the recipient’s door.
  • Accepted by others:- Check if anyone else at the address has accepted or signed for the item.
  • Delivery times:- Check delivery times to see when the item should be received.

Following these steps, if you believe your item is missing, please submit a missing item enquiry so that we can investigate.
