+ SUMMER DELIVERY (December to April)
Being a tropical climate with high rain fall our delivery driver does live in a flood prone area. If he is unable to travel into the city there may be a delay in delivery times and dates during this time. We WILL NOTIFY you if any changes need to be made due to our driver or the delivery address being inaccessible due to flood.
Living in a cyclone prone area brings it's own challenges. We may implement this policy anytime in the months of November to April

+ Flower availability. All flowers are air freighted into Cairns. Cyclones may delay freight also substitutes of some flower might be made. This will be at the florist discretion and will be to an equal value.
+ Reasons we may not deliver the flowers on time or the nominated day include but are not limited to - Power outages, road closures, flooding, potential damage to flowers and most importantly the safety of our driver.
