Our Pricing, Terms & Conditions & Privacy Policy

1. GST

Please note that all prices displayed on our website include GST within Australia. However, if you are overseas by default the initial price displayed may still contain GST of 10% so to see our exclusive of GST Tax pricing, first add a product to cart, then click view cart, click estimate shipping and add your country state and post code and calculate, then refresh the page and the cart will then recognize you are from overseas and show you the correct pricing. You can then remove the product from the cart and start shopping! If this sounds too complex just contact us and we will give you a quote. By the way if you are from overseas and you haven’t done this step don’t worry the cart removes GST anyway when you checkout.


We keep all of our products prices competitive and as cheap as possible. However, should you find a cheaper price – please see here.


We understand that sometimes it is hard to know exactly what you are getting online and understand that sometimes you order a product online and it is not quite what you want. So we have an Easy Returns Policy – See Here.


We prefer credit card transactions for overseas orders outside of Australia as we are able to better position ourselves and monitor against fraudulent transactions via fraud blacklisting and monitoring technology. We will also happily take bank transfer or western union on request. We also take PayPal as a method of payment for international transactions.

As we are based in Australia - currency rates are an estimate only. Banks and payment gateways can charge a conversion rate fee, and as currencies also fluctuate second by second there may be a difference between invoice and charge rate for international transactions only.

If delivery is outside of Australia - for some countries your government may impose a customs levy or tax, we have no idea about these and if you will or will not get charged tax. You will need to investigate this before you order. Our freight estimator or calculate shipping and tax estimator only removes Australian GST from pricing and does not calculate any import duties or taxes on those international countries that impose them. Import duties and taxes are your own responsibility.

For delivery time we usually ship pretty quickly however service times for delivery can depend upon where you are located and the method of service we need to use for the goods you have ordered. If you would like an estimated delivery time simply contact us.


Our pricing online is often cheaper than our ticketed in store prices. Please note that if you are local to our area prices listed on this site, on any email you receive or on any other online marketing channel we use are "online prices and deals only" and are not usually honoured in store.

Why do our prices online differ from those we have in our physical retail outlet? - Our margins online are a lot lower, sometimes razor thin online and we would not be able to operate our business in store viably if we were to sustain online pricing for in store sales. The cost to run a physical store is a lot! The cost to run an online store is minute in comparison.

Often we need to spend a lot of time with customers in store running through items which on a staff wage per hour basis for the amount of return on investment we get is extremely costly, whereas online little interaction with the customer is needed and we can get a lot more return on investment and productivity for the same wage. There are many other reasons as to why prices differ online to those in store but from the information provided so far we hope you understand if you want the extra face to face traditional service, you will need to pay for that service.

Should you wish to discuss this particular policy please speak to the store manager prior to purchasing your item in our physical store to see if the price and policy can be relaxed to some degree for you, Whilst we can’t guarantee we will relax the policy if you are spending a lot of money with us in the one purchase we will happily discuss what we can do for you.

Any orders placed online are not able to be picked up and will be shipped.

In addition fishingtackleshop.com.au gift vouchers purchased can only be used online and cannot be redeemed at our physical store. Vise Versa any gift vouchers bought in person at our physical store can't be used online.


If at any one time we decide to run promotions where multiple coupon codes are available only one coupon code is able to be used at any one time and cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer or code. You will need to choose to use the one that best suits you.
