Send Flowers to Australia from the USA

How to Send Flowers to Someone in Australia

So, you’re in the USA, and you’ve made the wonderful decision to send flowers to Australia. 

The process might seem like a head-scratcher, but it’s more straightforward than you may think. 

The trickiest part is navigating time zones!

How to Send Flowers to Australia from the United States

When sending flowers to Australia from the USA, time zones matter.

For example, sending flowers from the USA to Sydney requires a little extra planning as some big-time differences are involved.

Sydney is around 16 hours ahead of the western United States and 13 hours ahead of the eastern states. What this means is it can be exceedingly confusing to send same-day flowers from the USA to Australia, as it's likely already the next day by the time you decide what bunch to send!

So, if your loved one’s birthday is approaching, it’s best to organise your delivery ahead of time.  

We've put together a time zone calculator below to minimise your research and planning time. You can then ensure you have enough time to deliver flowers for that special date or occasion.

The table of time zones below shows each of the six time zones in the US and the corresponding time in AEST (Australian Eastern Standard Time). 

Sydney, Brisbane, Canberra and Melbourne all fall under AEST. Where the times are coloured blue, this indicates that that time zone in the US is currently one day behind AEST. For example, 1 PM PDT (Pacific Daylight Time) is 6 AM the next day in Sydney.

With a little planning (and the help of this handy time zone chart), sending flowers from America to metro Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth is fairly easy. 

However, it’s important to note that sending flowers to regional areas of Australia can be even more challenging. 

Regional areas typically have fewer local florist options, so you’ll need to research to find the perfect supplier who can send flowers to Australia on your day of choice. At Floraly, we deliver to many regional areas of NSW, QLD and VIC.

Note: During the warmer months of the year, some eastern areas of Australia implement Daylight Saving Time (DST). Australians in NSW, Victoria, South Australia, Tasmania, the ACT and Norfolk Island advance their clocks one hour forward during this period.

AEDT is followed from the first Sunday in October to the first Sunday in April, so be mindful of this, and of your own clock adjustments at home, if you’re planning to send flowers to Australia during this time.

Top tip: If your loved one is new to living in Australia, consider sending some Australian natives. Australian native flowers are unique and breath-taking and are the perfect symbol to celebrate your loved one’s big move. Most varieties of Australian natives are also quite hardy, so they’ll typically last longer than traditional floral bouquets and continue to look beautiful when dried.
