We aim to dispatch all orders within 1-2 working days. Please refer to Australia Post for expected delivery times. For orders placed on our website, a tracking number for your item will be emailed upon dispatch. 

We are happy to ship our kava to most countries and territories covered by Australia Post and their international partners. The shipping cost varies depending on the order’s weight and destination. Before the final checkout page you will be shown what the cost of shipping is. The bigger the order, the lower the per kg cost of shipping. 

Customers based in New Zealand can order most of the products we stock from our friends at The Kava Society.

We are unable to guarantee delivery outside of Australia. If your package gets seized, lost, or doesn’t reach you for any other reason outside of our control, we won’t be able to offer you any refund. Above all, please remember that it is your responsibility to ensure that you are allowed to import, posses or use kava in your jurisdiction.

Returns and Refunds

We want you to enjoy your kava so if you have any concerns or things are not what you expected then please let us know. We do not generally offer refunds if you change your mind or because something is not to your taste. However, if there is a quality issue we will make sure to correct it. We will always meet our legal obligations around refunds and returns.

All orders received are final and goods will be shipped as per the order form, so please make sure you double-check your address. If it is too late though and you see a mistake, drop us a line and we will do our best to make the change for you. Alternatively, if you receive your order and something is amiss, contact our dispatch team through the details on the bottom of your order email. We will handle errors on a case-by-case basis.

We do ask that you raise any issues promptly with us. If you do not do this, we might not be able to offer a refund, especially if the delay means we cannot verify the problem. Refunds will be made via electronic bank transfer only.
