Australia Post seems to be delivering Express Post items with nearly normal delivery times in July 2021,

We pack truffle in anticipation of delayed delivery and it seems to easily handle 3-5 (and more) days in transit. Top quality, ripe truffle ships and stores very well.
But we cannot guarantee delivery times or condition if delayed a week.

Extra cover insurance will be in place on any shipments, it will be the customer's responsibility to pursue claims with Australia Post.
The Express Post, Next Day Guarantee remains suspended, but they still claim to deliver within 5 business days
