Changes to your order

Please note that any changes to your order (delivery address, card message, or additional items) must be made by close of business the day before delivery. This ensures that we have enough time to amend your order before delivery.

If you wish to cancel your order more than 24 hours prior to the scheduled delivery date, a AUD $15.00 cancellation fee will apply.

Returns and Refunds
The Flowerland handles returns and processes refunds in accordance with the Australian Consumer Protection legislation. As each flower is unique, so too, are your special requirements and concerns surrounding your order. For that reason, we ask that you please call us on 03 8806 3572 to discuss any queries or concerns you may have in relation to your gift. A number of resolutions may be available to you and are subject to your particular situation. Should you wish to return your order, please notify us within 24 hours of purchase with a valid reason for return. If we are unable to resolve your complaint or further assist you, we will process a refund upon timely receipt of the goods purchased. Note: All refunds for orders placed with a credit card are credited back the original credit card on which the order was purchased. Refunds for in-store cash purchases may be processed through the original credit card for which the order was purchased or by EFTPOS only. Refunds are made at the discretion of www.theflowerland.com.au.
Conditions of Delivery
Addresses – We will always make our best efforts to deliver your order to the address you provide. It is very important that you provide correct delivery details – where incorrect delivery information has been provided we cannot accept responsibility for incorrect, failed, or non-delivery. Please also provide additional instructions for difficult to find addresses. In some cases, the courier will need to call the recipient to confirm details and co-ordinate delivery to ensure the goods are received on the date intended.
It is our priority to deliver your order in person to the intended recipient. However, where delivery is made to a business, the flowers may be delivered to reception, or the mail room. For hospitals deliveries should go to the bedside, but some hospitals accept delivery at reception or a nurses desk. For residential deliveries when no one is at home to accept delivery our couriers are instructed to leave the flowers at the doorstep where it is safe to do so (out of sight from the road, and out of the weather). If you have any specific requests, or if you do not give authority for us to leave the order where the recipient is not present please indicate this in the special delivery instructions.
Incorrect and incomplete addresses
Please be very careful in providing us with correct, complete and up to date address information. If you provide us with an incorrect or incomplete address and we deliver your order as per your instructions, we can accept no responsibility for the mistake. If we are unable to deliver to an incorrect or incomplete address and the order is returned to The Flowerland, we can redeliver but the customer will incur an additional delivery charge as well as a product replacement fee for any perishable items, such as flowers, that need to be replenished.
Dried Arrangement Postage
Dried arrangement will be send via Australia Post if outside Melbourne.
You will receive a tracking number once your item has been posted. You will need to monitor the tracking number yourself and lodge a missing parcel/late parcel request with Australia Post if you do not receive on time.
Whilst the utmost care has been used to pack your items and the parcels marked fragile appropriately, delicate flowers may naturally shed during transit. Please be aware that we use a third party courier service, which means once the parcel has left our premises we have no control on how it is handled, and in what timeframe it is to be delivered. If your parcel has not arrived within the suggested time frame of the tracking, you can lodge a "missing parcel enquiry" with Australia Post and they will follow up for you. This is completely out of our hands and we cannot find missing or late parcels for you.
We are not responsible and will not pay for, or refund for any loss, damages, parcels delivered outside of suggested timeframes by the Courier or expenses incurred during transit with the courier service. However, if your parcel does arrive damaged or lost please contact us via email immediately and we will put forward a claim on your behalf. This does not guarantee their outcome will be to refund.
The courier will have an authority to leave the goods unattended at the delivery location at your sole risk, unless you request otherwise by emailing us at email@example.com

The Flowerland endeavors to fulfill all orders in compliance with product descriptions, however flower orders may be subject to seasonal and product availability. The Flowerland reserves the right to substitute flower varieties when necessary, however we will always take utmost care to ensure the final product is similar in quality to the requested item. Substitutions and alterations to the style of a product will be of similar quality and value.
