    What's the mail order company?

    Are you using a numbered street address or a post box?
    Post boxes aren't allowed. If this is your only option you need to use the street address of your local post office then arrange to collect from there.
    Or go with Australia Post as you delivery option which can sometimes change the parameters in your favour.

    Other than that pretty much every hardware store will sell the plain old round $15 plastic soil sifter which I've found to be as good as any.

    Update! I just went to the company's website and went the the first steps of checkout. I was able to select Australia as the country, and then Tasmania as the state. Didn't have a postal code, so I went no further in the process. Did you get that far, and did it then reject your postal code?

    Have you tried asking Mark directly here? He's usually quite good at getting back, and he would probably have a definitive answer. Also, if you have friends on the mainland in Australia, perhaps you could have it shipped to them, and they could ship it to you. I think the company ships to Australia... Good Luck

    I also just noticed there is a member here named Cheryl Smyth. That's the name of the woman who makes the rolling garden sifter. I'll bet it's the same woman. Might be worth a shot contacting her.

    I have contacted the inventor already.. she said the costs to Australia are very high.. But she would get back to me.. I’m hoping Mark.. if possible you can do a bulk order shipment... clearly we are. Interested
