ERA Nurseries has now arranged three distribution depots, one in Sydney, one in Brisbane and one in the ACT. Subject to Covid protocols our customers will be able to visit these depots by arrangement and collect their orders,
This delivery service will be undertaken by commercial plant carriers where the plants are packed in racks. We can only send this way for medium/large sized orders of a minimum of 500 plants. The frequency of delivery will be determined by the level of demand, pending industrial action and possible Covid related restrictions.
Please call Peter on 0428 528 103 for all enquiries
For larger sized orders it may also be possible for us to undertake an in-house delivery service in Victoria in regional areas or to a transport depot in the Melbourne area. This can be clarified by calling Peter. 0428 528 103
We have now been advised by Australia Post That the delivery logistics situation has deteriorated significantly since our last update on 14th September and they want us to cease shipping altogether until advised otherwise. Covid restrictions have left them without sufficient labour in their system. This coupled with industrial disputation in the transport industry has resulted in further chaos.
The continuing lockdown in NSW and Victoria, in particular, has also resulted in increasing demand on online shopping.
All we can do at this stage is no longer accept orders dependant on Australia Post until further notice. We can, however, accept orders where the customer can collect the order from the nursery in Hamilton, Victoria.
For larger sized orders it may also be possible for us to undertake an in-house delivery service in Victoria on the western side of Melbourne. This can be clarified by calling Peter. 0428 528 103
These are live plants (tubestock ready for planting) - NOT seeds

Please look at the short video and commentary below which outlines the ordering protocols and packaging.
A New small pack of 20 plants is now available for customers requiring smaller numbers (minimum 5 plants per species) Orders >20 must be in multiples of 40 (i.e 40, 80, 120 etc). This is to match our packaging system and allows us to keep the prices low.
We basically have 3 carton sizes.
Small (20 plants)
1 tray (40 plants)
2 trays (80 plants)
You can order any available species with a minimum of 5 plants per species provided the total is 20 and thereafter 40 (or multiple of). For example, you could have 4 species x 5 per species = 20 , or 1 x 20 = 20, and after that 8 species x 5 per species = 40 , or 1 x 40 = 40 or totals of 80 etc and so on. You can order any number of plants you like provided they can be accommodated in the various carton sizes described above.
The delivery of Live Plants resulting from sales on this web site is currently NOT permitted in Western Australia, Northern Territory or Tasmania due to government plant movement restrictions.
Plant sales are also NOT available outside of Australia.
South Australia. Due to the presence of myrtle rust in the eastern states, PIRSA has recently placed restrictions on the movement of family myrtaceae species ( eucalyptus, melaleuca etc) into South Australia.
ERA Nurseries has been audited and deemed myrtle rust free. This ongoing monitoring has resulted in ERA attaining Myrtle Rust accreditation (ICA-42) thus allowing ERA to ship Myrtaceae to South Australia.
Shipments to South Australia will be accompanied by a formal 'Plant Health Certificate' and a manifest. It is a requirement that the receiver provides a street address for entry on the Plant Health Certificate. Goods can still be directed to a Post Office box if desired.
Basic Ordering Guidelines
ERA – Online provides seedlings in 20 and 40 cell Hiko trays where each of the cells of 93cc is equivalent to what is commonly referred to as tubestock.
There is a basic ordering requirement of a minimum of 5 plants per species with a minimum total of 20 plants and in multiples of 40 thereafter.
In order to optimise the packaging, freight and/or postage cost, it is a requirement that total orders (over the basic 20) be in multiples of 40.
Our range of plants will vary throughout the year to reflect seasonal shortages and supply and delivery trends. The range is being added to regularly so bookmark this site and check for updates from time to time.
Live plant orders will be shipped to you by Australia Post Parcel service. Delivery time will usually take between 2 and 4 days depending on location. You will be issued with a tracking number and order confirmation email once you have lodged an order.
The packing and shipping charge will be charged as follows;
Cost per 40 plants (or part thereof) Victoria $15, NSW $20, Sth Aust $22, Qld $28.
These rates apply to orders of up to 500 plants. Please contact ERA for orders over 500 plants for a reduced shipping charge.
All costs include GST
In-Store pickup means nursery door which is located at Hamilton Victoria
Every care is taken to ensure that your seedlings arrive in the best condition possible. The seedlings will be packaged in custom designed cartons and strapped to minimise potential damage and disruption during transit. These internal straps will need to be removed before removing the trays from the cartons (see video)
Please be sure to loosen the seedlings from beneath by using your fingers or a suitable dowell. Pulling them out by the top growth may possibly cause damage to the plant.
ERA is a large scale producer. If you have a requirement for larger numbers of seedlings then generous bulk discounts will apply. This will also apply to wholesale operators, forward orders and contact propagation enquiries but does not apply to sales priced items.
Please contact ERA Nurseries on (03) 5572 2123 for a quote and competitive delivery charge estimate to anywhere in Victoria, NSW, South Australia or Queensland.
