Thanks dot!
Insure 'cause if it gets 'lost' Post Office will only repay postage.
VERY, VERY IMPORTANT!:
Make sure that you attach a properly completed CN11 customs declaration form (from any post office) to the package. Australian customs staff are VERY strict about confiscating any package without the correct documentation. (I once forgot to attach a CN11 to a book sent to a child in Oz. It was hardly a major smuggling offence but the package was still confiscated!).

Australia has NO exemption from import charges for gifts. However there's a 'low value' exemption applying to all goods. So, as long as your gift doesn't exceed A$1000 (about £675) in value, the recipient won't have to pay any charges.

thanks beegee and Chris.

Whenever I've sent gifts to Oz the P.O. assistant has always asked what the parcel contained, filled in a form and attached it so I expect it was a CN11. I've never sent jewellery before so I wanted to know if it was ok. It certainly won't be costing over £675!
Thanks again.
