Why did you start Down Under Box?
With the Down Under Box, we wanted to make it easy to get your favourite Aussie snacks delivered to you (or a lucky friend) no matter where you are in the world.
Not only does it cost an arm and a leg to send these highly coveted Aussie items overseas, there are tricky customs declaration forms to deal with and plenty of time to be wasted waiting in line at the post office.
With our help, you can send a piece of home to your long distance love, your friend studying abroad, your colleague working on secondment or your child exploring the world. Without breaking the bank and without all the hassle.
Why send a box with Down Under Box?
Whilst all of the products included in the box are available within Australia, our service offers significantly cheaper internationally shipping and saves you all the time and hassle of doing it yourself.
On top of the cost of the food items/souvenirs, you have the extra cost of shipping boxes and the cost of the shipping itself (Australia Post retail rates are over double the cost of shipping with Down Under Box). Add to that extra cost the significant time investment to track down all of the items, fill out tricky customs declaration forms and waiting in line in the post office.
Our service is focused on saving you time and money while giving Aussies overseas a fantastic experience with a real taste of home.
What sort of paper do you use for the note & photo?
Notes are printed on thick premium paper with a satin finish and all photos are printed on 4”x6” photo paper with a professional grade photo printer.
