CURRENT DELIVERY TIMES
Due to the current situation involving COVID-19, we are doing everything possible to keep within our high standard of delivery times. However, due to a very unexpected high volume of online orders and also delay in courier delivery times, your order may experience longer delays. Currently orders into NSW are taking approx 5-7 days from order dispatch. VIC approx 6-8 days. Please check updates for Australia Post below
Our team is working very hard to get orders out ASAP.
If your order is urgent please think about the above possible delivery delays before ordering. If you have any questions please email email@example.com

Customs, Duties and Taxes
Little Rookie Sport www.littlerookiesport.com.au is not responsible for any customs and taxes applied to your order. All parcels are marked DDU (Delivery duties unpaid) this means any fees, duties, taxes are paid by receiver. All fees imposed during or after shipping are the responsibility of the customer (tariffs, taxes, etc.).
Many parcels won’t require any import duties to be paid, because they’ll fall under the country’s low-value threshold
For example, the low-value threshold in the U.S. is currently set at $800 U.S. (approximately $1000 AUD), but for Germany, it’s 22 EUR (approximately $33 AUD). So, it depends on the destination country.
If duties do need to be paid, the local postal or customs authority for that country will most likely get in touch with the receiver of the parcel to organise it with them directly.
- Paying online before collecting the parcel
- Paying in-person when collecting the parcel
- Paying upon the delivery of the parcel
