Shipping Carriers and Conditions

Your order will ship via one of the following carriers. Unfortunately we are unable to adhere to shipping carrier requests.

  • Australia Post
  • Australia Post Express Post
  • Startrack
  • Fastway
  • Go Logistics

Owing to the value of our products, a signature may be required upon delivery.  If a signature cannot be obtained at the designated delivery address, the products will be delivered to the nearest Australia Post Office for your collection, or returned to the local courier depot. In both instances a calling card should be left by the driver, giving the local post office address, or instructions on how to book a redelivery.

If Authority to Leave is expressly granted during checkout, Fishing Station accepts no responsibility for lost parcels. 

Please note that once you sign for the product/s, you own them. The freight carrier and/or the manufacturer are unlikely to approve an insurance claim once you sign for freight.  Therefore, please ensure that you inspect the product/s before you sign for them. If the product is, or appears to be damaged, do not accept the delivery.

Order Tracking

A tracking number and shipping carrier will be provided at the time of order dispatch (a separate email will be sent). You can enter this tracking number on the website of the shipping carrier.

Please note: tracking information may not be immediately available – a time delay of approx 4 hours is generally the case between dispatch notification and when information becomes available.

Delivery Times

Standard Shipping

  • 1-6 business days
  • Delivery times may vary depending on location and seasonality.

International Shipping

  • Items >80cm require a custom quote (rods etc)

Order Cancellations

Should you wish to cancel your order, please contact us immediately, preferably by phone. As we ship on a daily basis, we may not be able to cancel your order prior to dispatch. If this is the case, unfortunately we will need to charge you the cost of delivery, and the cost to have the parcel returned to us.

Shipping Delays and Return to Sender

Please allow sufficient time for your order to travel to you. Should your order not be with you after 8 business days, please contact us and we may be able to open an investigation.

If we are unable to deliver your package after multiple attempts, and it is returned to us, a re-delivery charge will apply (regardless if the order qualified for freight-free). Please check your address details carefully on the order – returns due to incomplete or incorrect address details will also incur additional charges.
